Comment (by arthuredelstein):

 Hi gk and isabela,

 I agree with your points here. The code currently doesn't have an X to
 close the banner, but we can add one. And I think you're right we should
 wait for a later release to post this banner.

 I think we could also consider a design in the future where the newsletter
 link is not so prominent but integrated better with the about:tor design.
 For example, it could look similar to the Tor Browser Manual link. That
 way we could include the newsletter link permanently without distracting
 from the more important elements in the design (such as the onboarding,
 the "Explore. Privately." tagline and the search box).
