FWIW, i get the exact same feeling.  I also share the opinion that the
page looks overcrowded and, personally, find it easier to click than to
scroll and try to find what i want in a big page.  To add to the list of
purely subjective opinions and wishes, i would also like to see a "pure
hackers"-looking page i could point prejudiced colleagues to, with
little emphasis on the educational aspects of Racket.

Just my two cents,
Nature uses as little as possible of anything.
  -Johannes Kepler, astronomer (1571-1630)
