Regarding the responsive design: There seems to be a minor issue at around 800px and 1200px width. The width of the content+scrollbar exceed the width of the browser resulting in a horizontal scrollbar.

Also, the "IS IT GOOD FOR ME?" text, with all caps seems out of place and the text below it has some stray non-breaking spaces next to regular spaces. Perhaps filling out those text blocks makes them look less crooked/offset compared to the image and button below?

Agree.

Again, agree.
Additonally, the LEARN MORE (caps are fine here) buttons might look nicer if they were aligned at the same height.

Otherwise, it looks nice and modern. Good job!

Is that picture of the computer screen from AHK/is it a AHK script?

also the "what is it" shouldn't go to Wikipedia in my mind, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AutoHotkey.

and "The awesome beginner-friendly, scripting language for Windows." should be a bit more clearer of What AHK is in short terms

also maybe we could have it show like a slide show of pictures of Advanced scripts and also Editors for ahk scripts and plovers macro creator, or maybe even include a ahk Editor into the installer or make it really easy to find for new users instead of them using notepad
:yawn:

It is an AHK script (the one that he's changing it to).

Yes... I realised the width issue... but it was like that in the original... I'll see what I can do about it.
Otherwise, I think I have integrated pretty much everything mentioned so far...

In proximity to the video

Why doesn't it redirect to autohotkey.com?

autohotkey.com wrote:The awesome beginner-friendly automation scripting language for Windows.
I know this will seem minor to some, but punctuation is important. ("Grandma enjoys cooking her family and animals.") The comma was removed from where it didn't belong after "beginner-friendly", but it still needs one inserted after "awesome". It is currently saying that it is friendly to awesome beginners. (You might think it would need to say "awesome-beginner-friendly" for that to be true. That would not be true and would also be incorrect grammar.)

But as I've stated, "awesome" doesn't seem like the right word here. I would also change "beginner-friendly". I think it should be something like, "The powerful, easy-to-learn automation scripting language for Windows."

Better yet, something like:
AutoHotkey

Powerful. Easy to learn.

The ultimate automation scripting language for Windows.

And to emphasize how much I think the word "awesome" doesn't belong...

I think it's a very casual word. I use it on occasion, but it doesn't fit here. People already (incorrectly) question AutoHotkey as a serious or "real" language. We might as well put a cartoon of a teen with his cap on backwards, carrying a skateboard, with a speech bubble saying, "Hey, dude. Come check out this awesome scripting language!"

I will fix these issues later tonight.
I will also migrate the foundation page to .com, the logos page, etc.

Also, if it's possible to put the issues on github, it would be easier for me to track :b
