Andkon Proposes New Design for Mozilla Foundation Front Page

Tuesday July 27th, 2004

Sometime Mozilla antagonist Andras "andkon" Konya has written an essay on how the Mozilla Foundation can attract new users by improving its website. Andkon takes a critical look at the current mozilla.org front page and the main Mozilla Firefox page before presenting an alternative front page design that he believes will cater better to the needs of end users.

Great document. I see same problems with current designs, but i don't like his conception of design. It looks very... hmmm unpolished. Apple wins not only because of great campaign but also because its products are so well polished and looks just... modern, light and so on. Try <http://www.firefox.pl> - i don't say we made it perfect, but we passed most of tests and we looks better in my opinion.

Second thing is that pushing everybody to use a translated copy of mozilla.org's site is something i don't want to see ever. If You want to have translated versions - ask us to translate bu use it on official server, and meaby ask us to use it as start page of localized versions. But local sites about products are fully localized for our market and our main goal is to fix the user needs. Local users - not those from USA or China, so sorry - give us some space. It's not so needed for branding since not many users who uses local sites like firefox.pl or thunderbird.pl will use official. (1) what for? 2) they don't have to know english and love to read in it)
