I am in the process of developing a web site. I want web stats that show visitors, not just hits. In searching for a counter that meets my needs I found StatCounter. http://www.statcounter.com/ Before registering and installing, I searched the web for comments and reviews. It gets high ratings. However, PestPatrol classifies it as a Tracking Cookie pest which it can remove. http://www.pestpatrol.com/zks/pestinfo/s/statcounter.asp I need some clarification and all searches merely took me in circles. Is Statcounter merely a cookie which is used to track a visitor's activity on a site, or does it do some nasty things? Is it included for removal by PestPatrol simply because it is a harmless cookie, but takes up space and some people dislike cookies?
