I have a really hard time answering that question then: there was no web 
designer involved in creating PyPI (*). The browser that the
*authors* of the service target are really the ones I mentioned: all of 

There is one browser that gets special attention, and flaws relating to 
it get fixed faster than for any other browser: setuptools.


(*) of course, it uses the layout of python.org, which did have a web 
designer; for this design, I don't know the answer.
