Can Alexa track RESTful URLs?

I have an easy question for someone who knows the answer...

Back in November we switched our site to Ruby on Rails and notice that on that day, our graph of stats presented by Alexa stagnated. Since our site uses RESTful url structres, I was wondering if this may be a reason why Alexa did not report site usage?

Thanks for any help,

It sure should be able too. There is nothing so different about them.

The Alexa toolbar is IE driven. If IE can load it - it will crank the url off to Alexa.
