The website looks great. +1

I do have a little bit of worry along the lines of Stephen's: the gaps can be a bit annoying/confusing if you are viewing the page on a smaller screen. For example, I first looked at the new page on my phone, and it looked like a terrible waste of space if I were just to scroll through it. Then again, if someone is seriously considering using this piece of software they probably aren't viewing the webpage on a mobile device... Not sure what can be done about this outside of moving to separate pages. It's only a minor quibble, so probably not worth the trouble.
