BrowserHawk 11 Released
Date Published: 26 October 2007
CyScape recently announced the latest version of their browser capabilities control, BrowserHawk 11. While I haven’t had a chance to review this new product yet, it touts some new features that at least appear to be pretty compelling. I use BrowserHawk and CountryHawk for LakeQuincy’s advertising solution, AdSignia, to quickly determine each ad request’s geographic location, allowing for certain ads to be targeted accordingly. We also pull some data from the user’s browser which we use primarily for statistical analysis (for example, what percentage of our users are running a particular screen size). It’s a rock solid and very fast set of products – our ad engine is currently serving over 100M impressions per month (an average of over 37 requests/sec – much more than that during peak usage)*, and these products just work.
* All of this is running on a shared web farm at Orcsweb, which they only charge $399/mo for. Quite the steal for this kind of performance.
