    Has anyone used Google analytics??? The Widget looks cool but I have no experience with the service. :(

    Have found it to be very useful. I manage several sites and its information about them is comprehensive, easily customizable, and extremely helpful. Two caveats:

    1. You have to put some special JavaScript code on **every** page that you want to be monitored. (I strongly suggest a boilerplate method in case Google ever indicates there's some need to change the code.)

    2. It won't work for those users who have cookies turned off (see 1, above).

    Other than that, it's great. And, yeah, this widget looks pretty cool, too, for spur-of-the-moment-kinda stuff.
