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.

One big thing to improve at mozilla.org, whatever the design is, is localizations. Currently the site is English only, and that really sucks. If not language detection, then flag links to change language... but forcing everyone into English makes people who speak other languages think they need to be computer geeks and know some English in order to use the Mozilla products. If the webpage does not have support for your language, why would you think the producty does?

I speak Spanish, if I want to invite someone to use a mozilla product I cannot simply send them to mozilla.org as it's in English only. Mozilla Europe has improved this much, I could send them it: <http://www.mozilla-europe.org> but is that the way it should be?

The mozilla.org site is sufficiently static, has so few updates and little context that I simply cannot understand why we dont have localized versions of it.
