Hello GNUzilla maintainers,

We are planning to migrate all templated pages on gnu.org to HTML5 in
order to improve accessibility. But before doing this, deprecated tags
such as <tt>, <acronym> and <big> need to be removed.

The home page of GNUzilla contains <tt>. I got rid of it, and took this
opportunity to make other changes:

* Page structure

 - Remove the first heading (Introducing GNUzilla and IceCat),
   which takes up space without adding significant information.
 - Make "Privacy protection features" and "Online help" separate
   sections (h4 > h3).
 - Place "Free add-ons and plugins" inside Downloads (h3 > h4).
 - In this section, use <ul> instead of <p>.
 - Add a button to download the latest release.

  ==> To ease up maintenance, you could add a "gnuzilla-latest" symlink
      to the download directory.

* Text

 - Rewrite some sentences to make link text more meaningful
   (no URL: screen readers spell them letter by letter).

* Minor edits

 - Replace <tt> with quotes, <i>, <kbd> or <code>
   (<kbd> has a special style).
 - English quotes rather than straight quotes.
 - http > https where possible.
 - Remove "http://www.gnu.org"; from local URL,
 - Add punctuation at the end of list items.
 - Add a missing </p>.
 - Update to the current boilerplate (CC BY-ND 4.0).
 - Link to the Wayback Machine archive of the Hitflip website
   (no images, unfortunately).

* Layout and style

 - Move style definitions to <head>.
 - Use em instead of px for consistency with layout.css.
 - Center the main heading.
 - Emphasize the Features section with a blue border.
 - Limit line width.

A diff is attached. If you agree with the changes but don't have time
to commit them right now, I will gladly do it.

Best regards,
