Techmeme is a fairly popular aggregator for technology news from around the blogosphere, but I’ve never really liked it. I hadn’t thought about it before, but I think the main reason I didn’t like it was the layout. On Monday that changed, when founder Gabe Rivera launched a new layout option called Techmeme River:
River pages are compact, with no news clustering, but include permalinks to standard pages where Discussion and Related items can be found.
In summary, River eases a number of common power user pain points, all with a basic long list of headlines. Enjoy!
I wouldn’t consider myself a Techmeme power user, but I do find the new /river layout much easier to use. I find myself visiting Techmeme far more often now. Check it out!
