How is it sensible to compare a hardly-just-entered-beta product with a years old very mature product? Of course GA will win.

Comparing a brand new product with seasoned prodcuts happens all the time. It is to give you insight as to what the new product offers compared to the seasoned one.

I agree that it’s not exactly a fair fight.  My real intention was to see if anyone else was using Gatineau, and whether or not they liked what was available so far.  Yes, GA was the hands-down winner this time.  We can only hope improvements are made to the Gatineau interface to make it more intuitive.  I would love to see Gatineau become a major competitor to GA.  It would do great things for the web analytics arena.

Well, since the name of "killer" has been given it’s a guarantee that it will fail. Every time people feel the need to introduce a product and position it in such a way that the measure of success is complete and total anihilation of the top competitor, then it’s 99.9% likely to fail. Just put out a good product into the market and earn a market share like normal industries.  You don’t see Frito-Lay touting their new "Dorito Killer", do you?

It’s been almost a year, and I’m still waiting to be impressed by Gatineau.  Now that Yahoo! is getting into the mix, expect another post on this.  I’m seeing something like..."Is Yahoo Analytics the Next Google Analytics Killer?"  ;-)
