my browser game states that people are downloading

I have an html5 browser game and my dashboard analytics has shown that people are downloading it. How is this possible? When I visit my game's site there is no download button.

The itch.io app downloads HTML5 games and stores them locally, so players using the app register as downloaders in your game's stats.

If that was the case wouldn't my views/downloads be 1-1?  instead I have 186 views to 8 downloads

No, why would they? Very few people actually use the app compared to those who play the games. That's apparently because most people who come to buy and play don't actually have an itch.io account. So it's only natural that you'll see a lot more views than downloads.
