  1. Hi. This is a great service. Appreciate all the neat reports. Have been using now for about 2 months and I am very impressed. Is it possible to have available ability to create query’s for obtaining grand totals for hits on “Came From” statistics? Thanks again for all the hard work.

  2. I am big fan of statcounter. Date Range Selector is cool feature. Thanks for keeping basic statcounter free.

  3. The Feedback tab on the right didn’t appear for me. So I couldn’t give feedback. Probably because I have Javascript disabled. I don’t like sites that need Javascript turned on in order to function. It slows my computer down. One of the best features of old Statcounter over the other providers was that it was nice and fast, didn’t require Javascript and didn’t slow my computer down.

    The “narrow range” feature doesn’t work without Javascript either ๐Ÿ™

    1. so please have that java script turned on! Only the ‘oldies’ use computer withOUT javascript…(an it turned ON most, if not all developers anger – such as the ST team. They will not answer because they’re angry…)

  4. Wow! beta is cool…i have been using statcounter for long time and i love it ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Stats counter has always been a good monitoring tool, I feel this addons were really necessary for the comming year, I can just say good luck to you guys.

  6. The new stats counter site seems to be good with some easy to handle feature.. I think you guy will rock with this features.

  7. the redesign looks like it’s going to be amazing! thanks for the awesome service ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Just figured it out. Those references to go daddy seem to appear in the Dreamweaver tracker code. I’m uncertain why. I was actually looking to see if there was a specific php code and strayed into the non-standard area.

  9. Very nice improvement. Can I ask however. Has the tracker coding also been updated. Curious because I thought I saw go daddy and other links included when I tried generating replacement tracker codes today. probably just me hitting wrong buttons,,, but has the policy changed?

  10. I need help because I cannot see my statcounter on my blog. I need to figure out a way to fix the problem.

  11. Love the improvements.
    How about having totals (a summation of all # of visits to all my projects) at the bottom of the screen.

  12. The new search engine graphics and graphics in general to visualize the stats look great. One question though, what are the stripes of color referring to in the search engine images?

  13. I love the ability to switch between projects! Awesome, that is going to be soooo handy.

  15. Please update those ugly graphs on summary pages. Those green, orange and blue ones, looks so oldy.

    All other are great !
