    Just curious about it. I think quantcast does the trick, however, id like to know if there is any other tracking system that can do that.

    So far I can get every single details, but the gender.

    What about Alexa? I know that Alexa is only accurate regarding the users that are actually using the Alexa Toolbar, but it's something :/

    Compete.com may do this. I have not tried it though. They have a free trial in case you are interested.

    Don't know if this is really relevant for you OP but I tought it might be interesting for some people:

    http://www.mikeonads.com/2008/07/13/using-your-browser-url-history-estimate-gender/

    This is basically a JavaScript that can guess the age and gender of a visitor. The guesswork is based on the browser history, more specific the link color. It simply asks the browser for the CSS link-color for thousands (hundreds?) of sites. With all those sites in the browser history you can then guess the gender and age, because women use different sites than men etc.
    Im not quite sure if modern browsers still allow this, but I tought back then that the CSS-Link-Color trick was really a great "hack" and a good example how to think outside the box.
