Google Analytics New Beta

A quick note to say the new Google Analytics, the free web site traffic statistics program, is pretty sweet and such a welcome change over the old. If I had ten seconds to say why it’s better, well, less finicky little buttons and text, more of what I need to see right away–particularly the six Site Usage stats under the main Visitors line, with Tufte-like sparkline graphs and quick numbers–bigger and brighter colours, everything and not more that I need on one page.
Also pretty sweet use of Flash.
