    While it’s not directly tied to anayltics in the sense of google type analytics, LORI is essential for telling the web team “The web site is taking 342 seconds to load and it’s over 100 meg in size. What’s up?” – I just used it this week. It’s installed on all my firefox browsers these days.

    Something that displayed Google A. data in Firefox would be supreme. Would mean stats addicts like wouldnt have to checked GA every 30 seconds :)

    Grease monkey + a google groups solution can ban spammers from your group, one at a time. It worked for Callahans when they got the solution from elsewhere.

    Nice list! I’m always checking my analytics every day. It helps me know what’s good on my website (aside from the free games). Some of these extensions will be very useful. Thanks a bunch!

    Great article as always. I am using GA right now and have used wasp in the past. I have not been able to upgrade WASP to work with Firefox 3, I hope I am just missing something or the developers are just working on it and haven’t released the update yet. Great post as always.

  7. M Capsul says

    These plugins work great for alot of the standard Web Tracking packages, but I still do not see support for some of the smaller/ newers entries such as http://OVERSITEstats.com I guess we can hope the next round of releases expands their audience beyond Google Analytics.

  8. says

    Fantastic list. I was aware of and using WASP and Greasemonkey for some time now, but there are some here that I’ve never heard of before. Thanks so much for the resource.

    By the way, I’m trying to subscribe to your RSS feed, but I get an error and my reader is not seeing the path:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: get_default_feed() in /home/content/t/h/o/thomsonm123/html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 1470

    Can you fix it? I’d love to subscribe.

    I was thinking that it would be good if there were some way to check GA without logging in. Fire Analytics should do the trick.

  10. says

    Great set of analytical tools. I use Wappalyzer to check for Google Analytics presence. I must say that Fire Analytics seems very promising, I will give it a try.
    Thanks for sharing this information.
