Recommend webstats for me please

Hi all.
I've just found out I can't have webstats for my webspace because I'm on BB+ so I was hoping some knowledgeable person could please recommend an alternative for me. I have no experience with them but would like to see what kind of traffic I'll be getting once my site is set up.
I'll be putting a flash-based site up onto a single html page.
I've found this thing called statcounter on the web (http://www.statcounter.com/). Anyone know if this would be suitable?
Also, are there any risks to having a 3rd part stat thingy like this?

Re: Recommend webstats for me please

It seems fine thanks Liam. To be honest, my site isn't finished and I'm currently debating whether to put in on my cgi or www due to issues with flash sending an email form variables to the php in my cgi space. I've signed up for the google analytics and it's all working. Once I've got my site done, I'll advertise my services locally and at that point I think it will be a very useful tool to see how the hitrate may alter (or not).
It seems spot on for my needs and was a doddle to set up. Cheers.
