Web Analytics Goes Open Source with Piwik

Piwik is an open-source web analytics platform that aims to be a direct competitor to Google Analytics, although as it exists, it’s not exactly a good replacement. The cool thing is anyone can develop plug-ins under the GPL license. You can customize your analytics interface based on your needs, by adding or removing plug-ins – this is where they are differentiating from Google Analytics.
