    Can't go wrong with Piwik.

    Awesome, clean, lots of features, runs on your server, regularly updated. Keeps you in control :D

    I like Piwik ,

    But atm I'm using Clicky ...they have a very nice extension in Chrome

    where I can see all my stats as I browse live on my browser.

    You can see who's on live and more...

    I like...

    Using GetClicky
    Code:
    getclicky.com
    Next to the usual stats they have a Spy function that shows real time action on your site. This is extremely useful when your starting a new campaign.
    Monitoring the first traffic allows me to make adjustments on the fly before the site really takes off.
