This test is to test my suspicions that the extreme counter is missing hits. I recently rebuilt a site and the extreme meter missed some 60-70 of my own visits... and it was NOT set to exclude my own visits. This is to test the possible miscounts using a broader sample.
The two meters were especially created for this test and have a start count of zero. I did not view the page until both were put up simultaneously. They should read the same... the possible exception is whether a browser has active JS.
If you're curious, you can check the results yourself by clicking on either meter.
