recently we had a highlighted thread where chrome was reported the new market leader according to statcounter.
there is something seriously wrong with these so called web analytics companies. of course there are extreme differences in countries and site demographics. so you should only trust your own stats. but then again, they could break down these numbers instead of generalization in the headlines, otherwise it makes absolutely no sense. and above all it seems that they also count bots, fake requests, caching, google web preview etc. one would expect from a web analytics firm that they can erase that traffic in their stats. obviously it isn't so.
what is the business purpose of these companies? are they related to one or the other browser maker and only doing pr sh*t for them?
