XHTML/CSS Redesign of mozilla.org Home Page

Thursday October 2nd, 2003

MozPhile writes: "In an effort to publicize a new CSS design for mozilla.org, a new mozdev project has been created. Based on the current design, this new one features valid XHTML 1.1 and CSS 2, with semantic HTML. First a fully standards-compliant browser, now a fully standards-compliant website to top it off!" Note that mozilla.org has not made any official statement regarding the design or whether they plan to use it.

The current design already is a mess, but using CSS-only layout makes it completely and utterly unusable with older browser. This is a site to invite users to use a new browser! You won't win them over by not supporting their old browser. Instead of forcign the use of CSS without good reason, the page and the rest of the site should be redesigned to be more helpful for users and make it easier to find current information.

The current main page is cluttered and makes it *harder* to find things (projects, documentation etc) than the old one. And it clashes with all the rest of the site that is still using the old design.

Adding links to the dozens and dozens of other helpful web sites about Mozilla, FB, TB etc. carrying FAQs, alternate builds, tips, and much more would also be a good idea.
