Is there an equivalent to free web metrics sites like Quantcast and Compete for the UK & Europe?

Quantcast and Compete have long been my go-tos for getting ballpark figures for Website traffic, audience demographics etc. I'm in the UK now and I'm finding that Quantcast and Compete's US-based panels are vastly underrating traffic to UK sites.

Are there any similar services that cater to the UK or European markets?

google analytics?

Well, Google Analytics lets me monitor traffic to *my* site - what I'm looking for is something that lets me estimate traffic to *other people's* sites. Thanks, though!

Alexa does lots of different countries.

Indeed, and it's certainly better than nothing, but Alexa only offers a non-transparent index ("this site is #3") as opposed to the extrapolated unique visitor counts, pageviews, etc. that Compete & Quantcast provide.
