Mint 2 – A Fresher Look At Your Site
January 29th, 2007 / 268 Comments

Shaun Inman has just released his latest version of Mint, a comprehensive web stats tool. I consider this a must have for any new site, and honestly I am not sure what I would do with out it. I guess the only downside to Mint being so good is that it can be very addictive.

As far as new features for Mint 2, I am most excited about the filtering by timespan on most tabs. For example, you can easily see the most visited pages in the last 2 hours, or check out where your referrals have come from in the last day only. These are very nice features built in to the default installation.

The new Visits graphs are also a nice addition, along with a new Pepper called Bird Feeder, which gives you a nice look at who is looking at your feeds.

My only complaint is the new look to Mint. For some reason it just doesn’t seem to have the same elegant, understated look as the previous version. The new style jumps out at you too much and is a little harder on the eyes.

I quickly wanted to point people in the direction of, where you can check out our mobile version of Vitalist. Add, edit, and delete items from any mobile browser on your phone or PDA. Get updated on your ticklers and create new ones. Fill in the completed date field to mark items complete. Also, the Dashboard, as well as all of your lists, is accessible for those on the go.

It’s simple to use, and it works with any mobile web browser. We kept as small as possible, so the pages should load quickly on any phone or network. Plus, this helps to keep your bandwidth usage low.

So, if you haven’t already, give it a try at or go to the tour to learn more and see screenshots. Let us know what you think.
