Huge potential

I've been reading Hacker News for years now and am growing increasingly frustrated at their lack of usability and modern design. HackerWeb is already an improvement by letting me collapse comments. I think it's got a ways to go but I see some huge potential to offer such an improved experience that people would be stupid not to use it.

By far the best Hacker News client

Easily the best Hacker News client available, highly recommend the web app version as well. The interface is a huge improvement over Hacker News itself, and lacks any of the clutter of other clients.

Clean and crisp and sharp and amazing

It's a web app. But you'd NEVER know because it's amazing work. Work like this deserves your money and time. This has been my go-to app since the start. Brilliant.
