Redesigned with you in mind, a clearer and easier to use Statcounter.

It’s our mission to make Statcounter the most useful, engaging and easy to use analytics app for our members. This update is just one of many improvements we have lined up to help make it easy for you to understand your visitors and make the most informed decisions about your website.


Clarity and ease-of-use.

While there are some new features and functional improvements in this update, the most substantial changes are to the look and feel of the Statcounter user interface. Redesigned from the ground up, we’ve placed priority on clarity and ease-of-use by improving the layout, typography, colours, icons, spacing and visual hierarchy.


See the wood for the trees.

New headline stats show you important summary information at a glance.

Compare and contrast.

A refreshed projects page makes it easier for you to compare trends across your projects.

Take a shortcut.

A redesigned date-range picker with shortcut buttons makes filtering reports by date quicker and easier.

Jump and zoom.

New jump and zoom controls on the summary chart make it easier than ever to navigate backwards and forwards in time and zoom in and out for different levels of granularity.

Be flexible.

You can now hide the left navigation menu when you need some extra space for your stats. This can be particularly useful for viewing reports that contain long URLs.

Be Vibrant.

Last but by no means least, we’re excited to show you our new logo. A vibrant new look to the future, with a nod to the past.

Watch this space for further improvements in the coming months and if you have any feedback, please feel free to let us know in the comments below or use the Feedback Tab in Statcounter.


  1. I don’t know, I think I preferred the old design, not sure why it needed to be changed were there complaints. This new design is taking some getting used to. Some things seem not to be there any more, unless they are well hidden – for example “Recent Came From” It’s not obvious that you can click on the panel to reveal the new menus, I found it all by trial and error. Jury is still our but I am not feeling it so far…

  2. I installed a free copy of STAT-COUNTER on my web page for a 501c Irish Group. All I needed was the number of people hitting our web page, the Stats provided gave me everything I wanted.
    Then it appears to have suddenly stopped working. Pity, I found it useful. when people told me they didn’t get our newsletter or “Obit” notices.

  3. The new site looks beautiful, but one thing I’d rather see different.
    Just leave the recent activity menu open, that’s perfect for me!

  4. I don’t like anything about the new design. I gave it a good try (during the weeks between the initial roll-out until today, when I realized that I could change my settings back to the original design… DONE!)

    I don’t have any complaints about the original design. I don’t fear change, in general, but this change sucks. And it seems so pointless. Please knock it off.



  5. I don’t like the look and feel of the new design at all. I prefer the old design. Why did you change it? Were there any complaints about the old design?
