Strange behaviour with these 2 browsers:
when i am visiting my site with FireFox (3.5) Piwik shows me as a visitor from GERMANY.
Visiting same site with MSIE (8.x) Piwik shows me as a visitor from AUSTRIA (which is the correct value).
Tested under localhost and live site.
But specially under LOCALHOST i am coming from NOWHERE ... means Piwik cannot show me as german or austrian!
If you're using the GeoIP plugin, you have to report problems with it on its trac ticket. #45
Otherwise, the default Piwik installation guesses your country from your browser language defaults -- which varies between browsers.
No, i am using NOT the GeoIP plugin.
So, this means that Piwik takes the country from the browser settings.
Which also means, when i am in England, use there my notebook which has as browser setting 'de-AT' (FF), Piwik reports this as a visitor from Austria.
But i have to say: not correct.
Or what do you believe?
If this is true, all Piwik statistics are wrong - you never can trust on the browser settings.
vipsoft or Blizzz, could you please submit a new FAQ explaining roughly how the country detection works and why people can't expect an accurate result because of browsers limitations. Thanks!
