Hi Udo,

The website design started at least 6 years ago, if not longer. Multiple
people worked on it and made it possible. The new website provides a
more welcoming interface, in particular for new users. Now the page is
concise and provides links for exactly the version a user likely needs.
If the user needs/wants another version (in another language or if they
want the Alpha version), then they are contained on a subsequent page.
People don't want too many options, they simply want the correct/best
option. This new design provides this for them.

If you have specific suggestions for improving this new design, then
please let us know. It seems you would like easier access to the tor
download page, I also don't see this. This is be a good improvement,
thanks for letting us know.
