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.

This is a good idea, however I think Internet Explorer should not be mentioned prominently anywhere in the website. Instead highlight the Mozilla features as "a turbocharged web browser" or "enhanced web browsing" or something along those lines. Mozilla.org is there to get you to download its products, not to discuss whats wrong with IE (plenty of other sites do that). When someone gets to Mozilla.org they probably are already 'browser shopping', so giving easy to understand information about the features, and that the product is secure and easy to download is important. Right now the picture of the car stands out more anything else on the Firefox page and it is distracting from the message of the page.
