Who Is Counting Windows 7?

I find it annoying that counters are still having problems recognising Opera 10. However, something as common as Windows 7, which has got a 7.83% market share in Slovinia, is still not being recognised correctly.

Since the official release a couple of weeks ago, I have been waiting for someone to view this blog with Windows 7 so that I could see how this was reported:

Identified as Windows Vista: BraveNet, OneStat.

Identified as Windows NT: SiteMeter, 24Log, GoStats.

Correctly Identified as Windows 7: ShinyStats, StatCounter, Motigo, ExtremeTracking.

Suppliers of counters need to be more attentive to changes in web technology to remain relevant and accurate.
