Good to know.  Kafka's compliance is the same as the current Tomcat, and 
Spark's is at 100%.

I moved the Support Apache icon to the top so we can see how it looks.

Here's an experiment - I added a dropdown to the menu with an icon "A" 
that opens up a slider that lets you choose a font size (12px, 16, 20).  
The size is persisted with localStorage which is supported by all modern 
browsers, though a cookie can be used instead.

I also improved the social media icons and margins on very small screens 
per Leon's feedback.

The Search box can be collapse to preserve screen space and only open up 
when the search icon is clicked.

Please be sure to reload the page, and keep in mind that this is a 
mockup where not everything is working 100% yet:
