Comment (by mcs):

 The list in comment:6 includes some very good points. Here is one more
 item (which has been mentioned a few times already):

 4. Remove the "Download Tor Browser" button from the download page header.
 That button has no effect except to reload the download page itself. This
 is especially confusing because that button contains a downward pointing
 arrow, which on most sites indicates that clicking the button will start
 the download.

 Also, I do not think we need to wait for results from a user research
 study before we improve the download page/flow. Even small changes as are
 being discussed here might help a lot, and I think enough smart people are
 paying attention that we are unlikely to make things worse. Research
 should then be used to make further improvements. That said, I fully
 understand if no one has time to work on the website this month!
