Even if you use Google Chrome it's still not going to use IP addresses to access Google Analytics. If you have any links to back this up I'd love to see them.
Here is example of first (no any URL provided) start of Chromium browser, Version 24.0.1299.0 (162321):
Tracking connections from Chromium browser
As you can see in this session it makes 5 secure tracking connections and it uses them until I close the browser...
1) Do you know any way to stop them?
2) If I block those names with my hosts
file, browser will open those connections anyway. It means one thing - browser doesn't need name resolution to connect to those servers or it uses unknown aliases for them.--
Keep it simple, it'll become complex by itself...
