Weird jumping bugs on porch

Manorville, NY

Hundreds of these have appeared on my front porch in the last few days. They jump like fleas but I don't think they're fleas (we have no animals). I thought they were spiders but I'm not sure. I see a lot of stuff on the web about springtails but they don't appear to look like this. Any ideas?

Sure it isn't a spider- it has six legs and a pair of antennae.

Springtails (order Collembola) in the family Sminthuridae. Harmless nuisance pests.
