Hi ,

I was going through the new website an felt like sharing
some comments.

"Community","Demo", this shall be referred to as "Top navigation"
in remaining text.

   of landing page eventually leads to.

     ofbiz against multiple alternate options.

     Essentially a graphical form of

Example i am referring to:

my 2 cents.
