Plausible Analytics is not designed to be a clone of Google Analytics. It is meant as a simple-to-use replacement and a privacy-friendly alternative that can help many site owners.
It's quick, simple to use and understand with all the metrics displayed on one page. Doesn't track hundreds of metrics like Google Analytics does
Lightweight script of less than 1 KB so sites load fast. The script is 45 times smaller script than the Google Analytics one
Doesn't track personal data so it's compliant with GDPR out of the box and you don't need to worry about asking for data consent
It's open source with the code available on GitHub so you can even self host exactly the same product free as in beer
Unlike Google Analytics, the cloud product is not free as in beer because the business model is subscriptions rather than selling the data of your visitors. Plausible Analytics is bootstrapped without any external funding so the subscription fees help cover the costs and time spent on development.

I've been using plausible since Sep 2019 and never had any doubts about it. It provides me with everything I need related to visitor stats while keeping privacy in first place.
It doesn't slow down my website loading speed (it's amazing, it's less than 1KB in size!), is not blocked by adblockers since it's not really a tracker tracker, and owners are super cool and they actually respond to every inquiry you could possibly have.
If you're looking for de-googling your stuff, you can start with Plausible :)
I tried several analytics tools prior to Plausible, namely Google Analytics and later on Matomo. I found both to be fairly complicated for my usage which is a personal blog. Complicated in the way I had to install and use them. Plausible's simple to set up approach combined with a very clean and inviting user interface was a breath of fresh air. It's simple and clean enough that it actually makes me want to check and analyse my traffic which is a feeling I never thought I'd have having tried alternatives.
It offers clear information about what I really need, without distractions, without advertising and does not slow my site.

Plausible is a new and privacy-friendly analytics service that is an attractive alternative to Google Analytics. It only stores data that enables a simple analysis of visits to your website. In doing so, Plausible does not track the user across multiple websites (does not store cross-site cookies). - Source: dev.to / about 2 months ago
There is a market for it but there are already a few companies offering it. Https://plausible.io/ Https://usefathom.com/ Https://www.goatcounter.com/. - Source: Reddit / about 2 months ago
Worse, you might find that there is nothing out there that does quite what you want. For a number of reasons, I've moved away from Google Analytics for my projects to Plausible, but there's no reasonably-priced Google Analytics alternative for native applications (that I know about). So I'm out of luck if I want an affordable solution for native analytics. - Source: dev.to / about 2 months ago
