New mozilla.org Site Launches
Thursday November 13th, 2003
The new mozilla.org website has been launched. This new site caters more to the end user, with better product information, clearer download links and more details about help resources. New Mozilla initiatives, such as telephone support, CD sales and donations are now promoted throughout the site. Navigation has also been improved and a friendlier layout and colour scheme have been created. This is the first significant redesign of mozilla.org since its launch in 1998.

The Mozilla project used to have a unique, consistent, look with its 'industrial' theme, but apparantly the developers feel this theme is outdated or just not suitable for this project anymore. Unfortunately, the theme has been abandoned without having a consistent looking new theme for the Mozilla project as a whole available. The current artwork is a strange mix of some 'industrial' left-overs (including the old monster image), happy-looking teletubby-monsters, and a large range of terribly inconsistent icons for the individual applications.
I do think the new website is a _major_ step forwards (although I think the accessibility problems really need to be dealt with), and I certainly believe it better suits the new objectives of the Mozilla Foundation. However, I hope some good graphic designers will step in and provide a consistent range of good quality artwork for the Mozilla project. Too bad I'm not much of a designer myself. :(
