Shawn Blanc’s review of NetNewsWire was spot on, so it should come as no surprise that his Mint review is equally accurate.
As a Mint user myself, I definitely agree with his praising of Mint for its simplistic, yet data rich design. As a site owner, it gives you the information that you want (and need) to know, in a way that’s easy to view and understand, and it doesn’t overload you with data that you’ll never be able to use.
In addition, Shawn coins a term for something that I’ve noticed but never thought to give a term to: The Mint Referrer High-Five. The MRHF is when you see SomeoneElsesSite.com/mint/ in your referrer list, which means that they saw your site in their Mint referrer list, and wanted to see what your site was all about. It’s like a community of Mint users, and if you’ve got a site, it’s time to join.
Shawn, here’s your high-five:
