Please keep all your feedback coming! The single best way to comment on the new site design is via the feedback button at http://beta.statcounter.com.
We can only improve with the help of your constructive criticism – so don’t give up on us! Please stick with us and let us know your thoughts as the design evolves in response to your comments and suggestions.
PS: As usual at this time of year, StatCounter has made charitable donations instead of sending cards.
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and all the very best to you all for 2011.
