The New SiteMeter: Chimps at the helm?
SiteMeter heralds the re-launch of their site with the words, "We’ve done it!" And indeed they have. Alas, what they've done is obliterate everything that was good and useful about their service.
Who's running this company? Chimpanzees? This has got to be the most ill-conceived re-launch since the New Coke.
I predict they'll lose at least seventy-five percent of their paying customers. Idiots.
I'm looking for an alternative, and signed up with StatCounter, which is not quite as good as the old SiterMeter (but superior to the new one). Does anyone have another company to recommend? Addfreestats.com seems good, but their terms and conditions look fishy and I'm afraid to sign up. Can't find any real info about them online, which makes me even more suspicious. Appreciate any info ...
