Table overview comparison between Mouseflow, Hotjar and Google Analytics
Pick the one that's right for you
How much of this page do users view? Which pages cause friction in the user’s experience? Why are users abandoning the sign-up flow? Google Analytics won't have the answer, but visualizations will. Features like heatmaps and session replays spotlight users’ engagement, interaction, and frustration. Since Google Analytics deprecated its Page Analytics extension in 2019, you’ll need a different analytics tool to analyze your users’ behavior.
