Apologies for the hiatus in communication. Over the last few weeks the whole team has been engrossed in the new design for StatCounter…
While private beta testing has been ongoing for some time now, we’re delighted to announce the public launch of the beta site today.
New Look and Improved Features
As well as a fresh new look, the beta site boasts many improvements and new features including:
- Date Range Selector for all stats – identify, for example, which Search Engines were used to find your site yesterday. Or last week. Or compare last week and this week. Etc.
- Simplified Code Generation Process – get your code more quickly. Reinstallation is much easier too.
- Quicker Sign Up for New Members – fewer clicks, more intuitive process – now you can feel even better about recommending us to your friends and colleages 😉
- Hourly Stats – based on the log file – watch the hour-by-hour traffic trends on your site.
- Project Dropdown List – simply toggle between your projects when viewing your stats.
- Improved Browser Stats – now it’s even easier to monitor the most popular browser families and browser versions used to view your site.
We’d like to offer our sincere thanks to all our private beta testers. While we haven’t been able to respond to every communication, all feedback has been read and taken on board. Your comments, suggestions and ideas have been invaluable. Sincere thanks to each and every one of you for your time.
To any of our members who may be CONCERNED:
We are all well aware of the many botched redesigns that have taken place on various websites over the years… please be assured that we have NO intention of suffering the same fate! The site redesign was undertaken simply and solely to improve StatCounter for you, our members, in response to the many requests and comments you submitted. We hope we have managed to achieve a fresh but familiar look. You will also note that we are *not* imposing this redesign on you! Instead, the new design continues as an optional beta allowing us to iron our any remaining bugs or problems before the new site eventually goes live.
PLEASE use this beta testing period to become familiar with the new StatCounter design. Please also submit your feedback (good and bad!) to allow us to fine-tune the new site according to your preferences.
We’re really excited about the new design and we hope you will be too! As always, your comments are welcome below.
The beta version of StatCounter is COMPLETELY optional at the moment. We are *not* imposing this new design on you – instead we have presented you with a new version of the site which we are changing and tweaking according to your feedback!
Some members are asking how to “switch” between versions – please note the relevant URLS:
- Access the main/current/regular StatCounter site as you always do at http://statcounter.com.
- Access the new/trial/beta StatCounter site at the special beta URL http://beta.statcounter.com
its seems good.
The design is much improved and still remains in the StatCounter style – well done!
Very Good Design. Checked out the time filter. Works fine.
Keep It Up.
Nice, totally looking forward to it. Statcounter has been a great resource for my sites, I am a big big fan.
I was happy enough with the old version.
Nice design and very intuitive. I love it!
Looks great! Like how they kept the features in the same place with a more modern look. Lower price a bit though then I’ll subscribe! 🙂
Looks great and works well, nice work 🙂
Glad to see you guys finally have a new design! I still like the old one but I have been using your service for like 4-5 years now and it has never changed 😛 good to see it updating.
Hey Aodhan & Jenni (& the rest of the team!),
I’m very happy to see the new design online. I know how much hard work, planning and constant re-planning was in the background and how much effort did you make to satisfy not just the new but all the millions of your existing users too. I’m glad to see this fresh UI and I think it was a pretty good idea to keep the stat screens with flexible with. I hope the rest of the future improvements will follow soon for the public – congratulations again and I wish you a lot of future success with the project,
Greetings from San Francisco,
Much better, well done! The first version you showed a while back that didn’t look as sharp but this version looks great.
New design is great :D. I like it very much.
looks great. very nice. but exchange rates of your plans are a bit unfair. €/$ is at 1,33 at the moment.
Graphics seems to be pretty nice..Will try that soon.
very easy to navigate
I also like this new design very much. Thank you for improving system and hopefully this service will remain free.
I’m going to be writing a review on the new StatCounter tomorrow on my blog.
great.. hourly updates….a major improvement…
Like the new design very much, Statcounter really needed a facelift!
The redesign looks great! Thanks for your continued effort to improve StatCounter.
