Very impressive: Works well with older versions of IE!
By , for WP 4.1

I have two sites that need to work in IE8, and I took a look at this theme already having all the other features I need just to see how it might do. Much to my surprise, this theme comes out of its box with the ability to display nicely all the way back to IE5. That will not mean much to some people, but it is truly impressive to me that you have taken the time to develop and offer a "free, basic, clean, minimalistic, responsive, mobile-friendly WordPress theme" that can provide an enjoyable experience for just about anyone at all.

Many thanks.

Simply Black, but Effective

I have a blog for my business and, due to a very colorful logo, I needed a theme that was neutral colored. This filled the bill. It's plain enough that it doesn't overshadow my logo, yet bold enough so the rest of the blog doesn't look boring.

It functions as it should. I've had no problems with widgets looking funky, as I often do in other themes, because of formatting. About the only thing that could make this theme better would be the ability to assign a color to text links (I had to use the CSS editor for that).
