SPOILER ALERT – Bruce Willis is a ghost. Actually, I knew some people that when Sixth Sense came out on video, went into Blockbuster and put stickers on the back of every copy, a move that was simultaneously comedy genius yet cruel. But I digress, as usual.

The opportunity for fashion retailers to appeal to consumers through ecommerce is something most can not afford to pass up, with 32% of online fashion consumers making a purchase at least once a month (Drapers).

Have you ever thought about whether or not the visitors to your website can view your content in the best way? Most businesses ensure that their website is tested on different browsers to ensure it is accessible and the usability is not compromised if a user does not have the latest software, but following initial testing, have you ever analysed the actual capabilities of your users browsers? Finding out the percentage of your users that are on Internet Explorer compared to Firefox, or how many of your users have Java enabled functionality can be very handy when making decisions about the coding of your website.
Luckily, Google Analytics can give you all sorts of statistics to really help you understand what your users are browsing with and how they may see your website. So here’s how:
