Inman’s Fever

fever.jpgShaun Inman launches his latest software, Fever, a really slick feed reader. There are a lot of really interesting things to note. First it’s a very slick interface based on the average temperature of the human body. The hotter the feed, the higher the temperature. Written for WebKit or Gecko-based browsers, it’s a really smooth UX. This is a bold move and provides us all a glimpse into what the web might be like without IE.

Lastly, it’s not a hosted application. Like Inman’s very successful analytics tool Mint, this is a PHP/MySQL application that needs to be installed on a web server. Inman’s audience seems narrow: developers or very web savvy users who are willing to use non-microsoft tools and want a fantastic user experience. Narrow is good.
