How do we know the browser version used when checking statistics in cp_visitor_stats table?

When using the table cp_visitor_stats for your statistics you will not see accurate data regarding the browser version used for the visits on your Customer Portal. As specified in the Data Dictionary, the browser_id column is derived from the user agent string and was not intended to provide the current version of the browser used.

In case you need to design a report in a way that retains the browser and its version from the user_agent_string, you might want to use clickstreams table instead.
