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.

Why are you so intolerant? You donīt have to like Andkon or his new Mozilla Webpage. Stay cool!

In discussing his proposal, you should split it into two aspects: Content and Design!

I think, Mozillaīs website design isnīt that bad, just the organization of the content is a little bit confusing to new visitors. It really remembers me of other (even own) historically grown websites!

This means, one should think about regrouping the content of the site. And, a tribute to Andkon, think about the influence of the content of the main page on new visitors, who are not familiar with the Mozilla products and the Mozilla history. This would reflect in a more marketing approach for this page. And Andkonīs attempt is a good example, how it could be done.

And donīt forget about the Mozilla Suite. It should also be mentioned on the entry page.
