[Webcom] Mozilla's site

I happened to be browsing Mozilla's site today and a few things  
struck me as attractive.  Little things that impress me don't always  
mean they are useful though ;-)  They do have some commonalities to  
OSGeo in that there is the Foundation, Products and similar other  
items we have.

http://mozilla.org  (and http://mozilla.com to some degree)

The front page uses 6 main boxes, and a few top tabs, instead of  
detailed menus.  They help you choose and then they get out of the  
way.  Main sections are: Foundation, Software, Store, News &  
Announcements (2-3 different kinds).  A pretty good fit with much of  
our content and it feels useful but not too heavy.

Overall, I just thought I'd mention this site because I happened to  
be there looking at some of their foundation docs and thought this  
looked neat.  Maybe there are some points we can take home??  I'm  
late to the party at this point, having missed last meeting, but  
thought I'd mention it anyway - I always like finding other  
inspirational sites to steal ideas from.  Not that I have time to  
implement them... :)

Coincidentally, our original theme for osgeo.org was based on the  
"spreadfirefox" Drupal theme (http://www.spreadfirefox.com/).
