Works fine in my current desktop browsers (linux chromium and firefox)
and it's really nice to watch the content flow while resizing the
browser window. (Would like to check that on my older laptop, maybe I
will report that impression later).
Switched to my tablet, displays readable in Firefox and Opera - on that
8.1 inch samsung tablet content shows up in two column layout in both
portrait and landscape mode. Readability very good.
Check on older mobile Galaxy S2: only Opera mini will show the content
in single column view as I would expect on such a little display. In
current Chrome (47.0) content shows up in 2 column layout which is
definitely hard to read for human beings 50+, I guess :-) Although the
chars are readable (I checked that with a magnifier :-) )
Firefox updated to 42.0.2 and still the same: 2 column layout is shown,
single column view would look better and grant easy readability,
especially in portrait mode.
Finally, in terminal w3m content looks well structured and reads very
good. In terminal links reads well, too, although there are blanks in
front of subtitles like 'Fun' etc and the subtitles are not shown in
bold face, as w3m does. But don't care, it's readable.
Conclusion: This layout approach could bring the picolisp website
content to tablets and mobiles in a well readable way.
Seems to be "a perfect addition for the ease of use on smart devices"
(which - for me - started with termux last time).

My dearest fellow PicoLispers,
I should have shared this two months ago! I don't know why I didn't.
Anyway, I think PicoLisp is the coolest and wanted to give something
back to the community.
I made a functional mock-up of a possible new homepage for PicoLisp,
which can be found here:
I set out to build something that reflected the awesomeness of the
language as I see it, while respecting everything that came before me.
The logo is just a different take on the existing logo. And you'll
recognize a lot of the writing from various PicoLisp sources and
tutorials; I grabbed the bits that I thought most effectively
described what PicoLisp is about, and weaved them together with some
of my own prose. I think it's fun read (albeit a little verbose) that
would inspire newcomers to give PicoLisp more of the attention it
It was built entirely with PicoLisp, love, and CSS. No frameworks, no
extra JS (or BS, for that matter). I tried to keep the CSS as minimal
and modular as possible - just a few tools and utils that I think fit
very well into the PicoLisp philosophy.
Do try resizing your browser! It's pretty responsive. Not bad for my
first foray into the world of frontend design :)
Now, I will admit that this falls more towards the designer side of
the developer/designer spectrum of websites. It's basically a PicoLisp
version of the Haskell website at this point. I'm not entirely sold on
it myself and the 'Try It' section is pretty corny, but I wanted
something concrete to work towards and this is what came of that effort.
I'm more than happy to answer any questions about the code or design
choices. Even more, I'd love to hear what you all think! What do you
like? Anything that doesn't sit well?
Frankly, my end game is to inspire the community to begin work on a
new PicoLisp website. PicoLisp has come so, so far in the last year!
It's spreading to more architectures, embedded devices, more people
are joining the mailing list than ever, writing and sharing software.
I love every second of it! So I wanted to give you all something to
react to, to start the conversation.
I had a blast creating this, and I hope that comes through!
Peace, love and PicoLisp,
