Urchin 6 vs 5

Since Google bought Urchin back a few months ago I hadn’t visited the Urchin web site but it has been vastly improved. Here is a link to a tour of Urchin 6 On Demand. They have released a new version that’s not hosted on your own server, but on theirs. That’s cool, I’m curious about they’re plans to upgrade the stand-alone version.

I’m not entirely sure how the dolphin pictures on their new web site fit in however they look friendly so I’m sure it’s safe.

Yeah, this new version of Urchin is really cool. It even has geo-tracking so that you can discovere the *city* that each user is coming from. I think they’ve totally got the right idea with the pricing model, too. We web firms pay a small fee per month, they keep it upgraded, and then we’ve got this awesome traffic stats package. Very cool stuff.

The only thing that I am a little worried about is that Urchin doesn’t have a comparison between Urchin 5 and Urchin 6. It worries me because I can’t convince my boss that it’s best to drop Urchin 5 and go to Urchin 6 when their own site doesn’t offer what the differences are.

Anyone find a document from Urchin that has the differences? Thanks,
