A request is a request made by a browser to a server for a specific file or piece of data. This can include the initial HTML page, as well as any additional files or data needed to render the complete website.

A view, on the other hand, refers to a single instance of a user visiting and viewing a website. This means that a single user visiting a website and viewing multiple pages would count as multiple views, but would only generate a single request (for the initial HTML page) plus additional requests for any additional files or data needed to render those pages.

In other words, a request is a specific action performed by the browser, while a view is a measurement of how many times a website is visited and viewed by users. CoAlias tracks both of these metrics in order to give developers insight into how their bubble app is being used.
