I don't see the obsession with the video on the front page when there is a link dedicated to that. I come to the main page to download the client or access the forums. if I needed to see the video to see what bitcoin was, I'd just click "What is Bitcoin?" view it one time, and then never want to see it again.

@kiba: My mockup has a dedicated link to the video. I don't think there is enough space to show the video on the front page in a reasonable size.

I think it's IE8 (win7) which is also available for WinXP.

Your point, while valid, has one flaw. Take note that this site is not only for people who know what Bitcoin is and want to do something with it. It's PRIMARILY for people who don't know what it is. They want to get some information on it. The video is the BEST way to do it.

yes, so I'm sure they'll click What is Bitcoin? and then they'll see the video.

I added a small hack to fix the layout in IE7.

another idea (not finished/WIP): http://bitcoincharts.com/~tcatm/bitcoin.org/

It looks nice, but it's too wide.

Current bitcoin.org looks good, but I think the horizontal space could be utilized better.  The page is a bit too long/thin.

Edit:

This one is better proportioned in my opinion.  Are you using a low resolution?

What screen resolution are you referring to? It works from 995px wide screens up to >1500px.

It causes a horizontal scroll bar to appear on the width I keep my browser at. The navigation menu is barely visible on 800x600.

Fixed. Video playback is broken on <983px and Firefox 3, though.

Doesn't seem fixed:

You can see that the navigation menu could be easily missed on 800x600. (And I find the appearance of horizontal scroll bars on ~1000px width annoying, anyway.)

I didn't know you were using Internet Explorer. The fix only works for Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera.

Doesn't work on Firefox, either, unless I enable scripting.

I don't think we need a TL;DR description of Bitcoin at bitcoin.org. Weusecoins.com is a better introduction for newbies. Bitcoin.org should have a short description of the project, direct download links (icons for win, mac, linux) and links to other Bitcoin resources. The video can be thrown out to keep things simple, although it might be good to catch the visitor's attention.

tcatm, I like the page structure and footer style of your version. The logo and the yellow text background should be changed. Some pro could design the logo. Body_wrap looks cleaner without the stripes. We could try something lighter and more colorful instead of the dark gray theme. Trying #B0318E for the language bar background already made it look more fun Smiley Fooling around with Firebug is fun.

I think it's very important to have a good explanation of what Bitcoin is and how it works on bitcoin.org, translated into many languages.  Bitcoin is still something very new and different and most people don't know much about it. While the wiki is nice for in-depth articles a short but correct overview (say 2..3 subpages: What it is, how to use it and fundamental protocol rules) will be helpful to users just discovering bitcoin. It shouldn't go too much into how it is used today, though. Just explain what you can do with it (i.e. no RPC documentation) and don't focus too much on the "official" client.
