My thanks to Sifter for sponsoring this week’s DF RSS feed. Sifter is a “hosted bug and issue tracker designed equally for technical and non-technical people”. That’s a bold goal, and I think Sifter has hit the mark. Bug/issue tracking systems are notoriously complex — they’re typically developer tools written for and by engineers. Sifter is different — it’s a “do less, but do it way better” sort of web app. And it passes the eat-your-own-dogfood test: the Sifter team uses Sifter itself for their bug/issue tracking.
The best part: Sifter offers a 30-day free trial, so you can try it out before spending a dime.
