What is the difference between this and Stephen Turner’s version?

After Dr. Turner stopped maintaining Analog, I have stepped in to provide updates to the detection algorithm. Analog CE should be considered to be a maintenance release of Analog. The binaries are newer and contain a small number of optimisations however the fundamental functionality is identical.


Do I need Analog CE?

Analog CE is primarily aimed at users who want to be able to detect newer operating systems and web browsers through the reporting functionality of Analog. If you don’t need this, then there is no specific need to use Analog CE unless you are:

  1. Looking to use XML output formatting for which Analog CE has a number of bug fixes
  2. Seeking to improve link privacy and reduce the risk of being victim to an SEO spam bot; this is especially important if your stats pages are accessible via the public Internet
