Web analytics firms kick off New Year with more suspicious statistics
 
Look, all tech reporters love data. It's the raw material we spin into articles. But it's become painfully clear in recent months that the numbers we are fed each month are horribly flawed, and the problem is getting worse.

If the companies involved won't stop publishing this silly data, maybe it's time for the tech press to stop playing along and retire those monthly reports.

Google took over in 2008, introducing its Chrome browser, which caught up with Firefox by 2012.
