“This is probably the most comprehensive global web analysis you can get and certainly for free,” commented former Gartner senior executive, Oisin Byrne who now heads independent tech research company, iReach. “StatCounter is shaking up the web research market by being able to provide such comprehensive statistics at no cost to users.”

There is no charge for use of the data or charts but users must reference StatCounter as the source.

  1. I’m the nutcase type who drives your graphs into oblivion because I use three primary browsers and another one occasionally. I wonder how your stats take such contrarians like me into consideration. I like the graphics of IE7 the best. IE8 has way too many bugs in it. If anyone loads it and needs to get it off Vista 64bit, I can tell you how. MS Vista Help didn’t even know how to do it. They said I would have to reload my computer. Not. I figured it out. Simple but delicate and it can be done.

  2. Very informative indeed. It’s very useful for tracking the trends and might be helpful for future updates of StatCounter 🙂 Thanks a lot 🙂

  3. StatsCounter is one of my most favourite tracking tool… Now with global stats, i will be liking it even more..


    Highly appreciated.

  4. Thank you for this free service. It has helped me a lot in analyzing what I need to do to increase traffic. The graph is easy to read too.

  5. mmm I was expecting more than just this… :(.. how about a keyword discovery tool or a graph of something like google trends?
