UX Suggestion: speed up the login process

As a daily user of Mint the small things that unnecessarily make me wait become a problem. A particular case that could be easily addressed is the login process. Even with my password saved and automatically populated by the browser, on a fast computer with fast internet, the login process takes about 15 seconds. That is a lifetime in UX terms, especially when it is easily remedied.

Currently to login from the front page I must:

1) click the (too small) login link
2) click another login button (redundant, apparently there just to allow users of Mint Bills to login from the home page as well)
3) wait for the login page to load, and then wait for it to load the actual form via ajax? (way unnecessarily slow)
4) fill in username and password (or let the browser do it)
5) click login

This could be reduced significantly by replacing the second button with the actual login form, and eliminating the separate login page entirely. It would look like this:

1) click the login link
2) fill in username and password (or let the browser do it)
3) click the login button to submit the form

The Mint Bills login link could still be exactly where it is, but user login time would be reduced from at least 15 seconds to probably around 3 seconds.

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
