This great new app from Clayburn simply replaces the familiar image on Google Analytic’s homepage with one of several random (and possibly better) ones. Tired of seeing Miriam every time you go to check your website’s performance? Now you don’t have to! You can be greeted by Iron Man, Ned Stark and more!
This extension was updated in June of 2016 to work with the new design of Google Analytics. Please let me know if you have any problems. I’m leaving the rest of this page the same to reflect the original version. The concept is still the same, but the images and layout has changed somewhat.
What does this app do?
The app is simple. It replaces the image of Miriam, affectionately called Analytics Woman by me, with less beautiful but more kickass people (and possibly non-people).
Miriam Naficy is the CEO of Minted and graces the homepage of Google Analytics. She has an awesome last name and a delightful smile. Her forehead alone could easily launch a thousand ships. Here’s the picture you best know her from:
What’s new in version 1.X?
Probably nothing. I’m not a good developer, and it took me X tries to get it right. The Chrome Web Store forces developers to update the version number when re-uploading.
What about privacy and stuff?
I don’t know how to collect your data, and if I did, I wouldn’t want it. The app requests access to “your data on www.google.com” because the address affected by it is on Google’s domain. If there’s a way to change this permission requirement to sound less ominous and ambiguous and ubiquitous, someone please let me know.
Is it really called Analytics Woman?
For now it is. Some people don’t like the name. I’m open to suggestions. Feel free to tweet me a better one.
Want to remove Nicole Remington?
It does that too! No matter who is gracing the cover of Google Analytics, this plug-in will replace them with something better.
Comments, Questions and Feedback
I’m on Twitter, which is a good way to reach me.
However, you can also contact me here. I can’t promise I’ll be able to fix things if you encounter something broken. But I am open to feedback and suggestions and help! If you want to submit an image to add to a future version, by all means send it to me!
