Google started the new Instant Preview Function with a spider who is taking a snapshot of the site.

This spider is using Java Script and also executes Omniture Code - this can be monitored within the browser report for Safari 3.1 which Google uses as user agent.

 

As other spiders and bots were generally filtered out I would expect that this new spider also should not be of any report.

Looks like there already is a comment on the Omniture blog about this:

Also, see http://ideas.omniture.com/t5/Adobe-Idea-Exchange-for-Omniture/Filter-out-Spider-and-Bot-tr affic-from-SiteCatalyst/idi-p/27 for a long-term view of what we're looking at. For now, I'm going to mark this as "Reviewed" since it will be addressed via a separate idea.
