This is the company that is suppose to be in charge of net stats? You can't get to their site unless you identify your browser as IE or newest Aol/Netscape. There is nothing on their site that needs either of those browsers - even Lynx will suffice. How stupid is that?
And people wonder why their stats show 99% of the net uses IE or Netscape.
Media Metrix is run by rank amateurs.
Thanks to Richard Grevers <firstname.lastname@example.org> for the reminder.
I don't want to drop a URL here but do a search on Fast Stats by Mach 5. Doesn't beat looking at raw logs but it gives me what I want.
Fast Stats is a good little program. I've used it on a client's site for over a year because that is what they wanted.
When looking at browser stats, always keep in mind that there is a growing number of agents spoofing as IE because there is a growing number of site admins who think that is what everyone is using. Compare a jscript based counter to real logs sometime - it's another one of those things that make you go hmmm.
