I already wrote Al a mail on that. I guess we are going to find a way
to make it look prettier, but my though still is that a screenshot on
the frontpage is simply not necessary nor useful. It also does not
scale well on small devices (try to take a look at it on your e71).

Instead I would suggest to put a set of screenshots either on a
separate page or on the 'Download' site.

Best Regards
