Announcing a New Mouseflow Chrome Extension: Downloadable Heatmaps


At Mouseflow, we’re all about innovation. If there’s a highly requested feature, we work tirelessly to make it happen. Recently, many of our clients requested an option to download heatmaps into an offline image. Due to the intricacies of rendering heatmaps in a browser, this made it difficult to allow for offline downloads. How did we solve this issue?

We built a Google Chrome extension exclusive to Mouseflow.

Most users view heatmaps as a picture but, at Mouseflow, we’re taking it a step further. Our heatmaps dynamically render data that is stored in your browser. The data utilized in generating these heatmaps is selected based on your segment/filters (date range, device, browser/OS, etc). The data is then provided as an overlay in our heatmap window.

With the launch of the new Chrome extension, users can now download any heatmap they want from within the Mouseflow UI. Need to show your boss a printout of user activity on your site? This is the tool for you.

Downloading this extension is easy! See below on how to add this extension to your Google Chrome browser.

We're pleased to announce that our heatmaps are now fully responsive which means you can switch between different device types directly from within our heatmaps.

Here's how to switch between device types (Desktop, Tablet, Phone, or All Devices) - it couldn't be easier:

Increase Your ROI with Secret Lead Validation Techniques


Lead validation is the process of separating sales leads from non-sales leads in an effort to generate a targeted list of the most reliable conversion opportunities. This information, although time consuming to collect, should be an essential part of your campaign analysis process.

Quality leads are always better than an overbearing quantity of leads. This is because it’s important to focus your time, energy, and budget on opportunities that are most likely to benefit your company.
