This destroys statistics... it would start counting robots... that will clutter the stats with many non-user data. I suggest to keep it away or document it only for people how understand what they are doing...
Normally you don't like to track robots - it's much more important to understand how users are walking a site. You will not earn money by robots crawling your site (you loose money - you need to pay for CPU time and traffic) - but users may give you something back. :-)
If you differ between bots and and humans and store and use the data respectively, you get further data:
Eventually you can get useful information indeed as long as you don't mix it up with the "usual" statistics.
sorry, line breaks are messed up :(
An UA string is not save. Robots sometimes comes as IE to get access to a site. Additional it is nearly impossible to make a list of all available robots and Piwik does not distinguish between UA's. If it would do - than it would be good, but I do not think this is implementable in near future.
PS: 99% of all users have JS enabled - if not they are not able to browse the new "Web 2.0" at all. They will not be able to see many sites... I know that a few big companies have switched off JS on their desktops in past... I wouldn't care about them any longer.
Note: restoring the noscript means puttint it back, it doesn't mean "count visits with JS disabled". Piwik has never counted visits with JS disabled and won't in core - but plugins could use this and report on bots, etc.
(In ) fixes #768 - added noscript node; surrounding object node is required for XHTML validation; omitted anchor linkback per email
(In ) refs #768 we do not print the piwik text and keeping number of lines as small as possible (users like a compact code)
(In ) refs #768 Making sure this is XHTML 1.0 Strict valid. See example in: http://piwik.org/xhtml/
