Good idea, Borek. I am doing this in Firefox (don't ask!) and the extension
can be found _here_:



* Need to change user-agent string setup whenever Firefox is started (can put
a quick switcher in the toolbar though).

* Certain sites will deny access, notably banks

* Other sites will suffer from false statistics.

You could then:

,----[ Command ]
| grep "HJKLHJ" log_file >your_stats

I don't know to to negative this operation or 'subtract' one file from

Best wishes,
