The New Generation of Statistics Tools

November 18th, 2005 by Jerome Dahdah

Considering Google’s massive psychological presence in the blogosphere, most of you have probably heard about the launch of Google Analytics earlier this week, a comprehensive website statistics tool previously known as Urchin. Google acquired the original software makers, enhanced it to work seamlessly with their AdWords program and is now offering it completely free of charge, in contrast to its old $199/month pricetag. They’ve done this several times before, bringing us excellent free tools such as Google Earth (previously Keyhole) and Picasa.

A few weeks ago, Shaun Inman launched Mint, a small but sophisticated (and very good looking) stats tool. Mint offers an API for plugins, ensuring it ongoing enhancement and customizability.

In a few weeks we’re going to see MeasureMap, which also looks very promising.

The one thing all three have in common is a strong reliability on AJAX. The new generation of web applications really does look sexy.

Anyways, to get to the point of this post, there’s a nice little round-up of the three tools in Mark Boulton’s journal.
