Statcounter touts integrity
Statcounter is utilising its new blog to tout itself as a standing pillar of integrity in the seedy world of online addons.
This is great, I'm not gonna bash it as being pretentious. They aren't naming other competitors that do allow the bad practice of allowing spyware installed into there code.
Spyware is probably the most disgusting legacy of the internet, even more so than spam mail. Spam mail is visible as a pain, spyware operates behind visual, its in the code. All that invisible little html, java, php and other script that beautifies everything internet.
Some spyware tries to hide itself behind something cute and fuzzy (literally). It's just not cool. Internet users shouldn't have to live in paranoia about what they surf.
