Hello! I'm Anthony - the engineer, designer and customer support behind Panelbear
Since 2020 I've been running Panelbear, bringing nearly a decade of engineering and design experience in various industries.
I built it as I found existing analytics solutions to be either too simple, or too complicated for most websites. I'm in the business of fast, privacy-first analytics, not selling your data.
I wanted simple analytics, web performance metrics, and monitoring alerts, without requiring multiple different services to achieve that. So I went ahead and built exactly that.
To avoid bloating the UI and become the same thing I set out to replace, I'm careful about which features to add, and prefer keeping things simple rather than being everything for everyone.
As a one-person startup, I focus on easy-to-use, reliable tools with a cohesive set of features that solve your problems, not create more.
Luckily, within a few months of launching many people found my service useful, and replaced their existing analytics with Panelbear, praising its simplicity, and real time analytics.
