Comparing Piwik vs Open Web Analytics

Just some notes.  Of course one could use both.

piwik (1.2.1):

  • automatic update from web (though be careful)
  • assign user roles per website
  • unlimited conversion tracking / goals
  • support forum
  • some bugs and broken reports – visitor log broken

owa (1.4.1):

  • no flash
  • better navigation (though this is subjective)
  • latest visits works correctly with timezone
  • tracks domstreams and dom clicks
  • action tracking – could be very useful for search tracking
  • goal funnels
  • some bugs and broken reports – top pages today broken
