Google Analytics Launches Asynchronous Tracking
Tuesday, December 01, 2009

Today we’re excited to announce our new Google Analytics Asynchronous Tracking Code snippet as an alternative way to track your websites! It provides the following benefits:

* Faster tracking code load times for your web pages due to improved browser execution
* Enhanced data collection & accuracy
* Elimination of tracking errors from dependencies when the JavaScript hasn’t fully loaded

This is excellent news. I had implemented something similar on my own, but it always had its own problems. I’m glad to see it officially supported.
