in fact, i like very much the current layout: with navigation at the 
right and affiliates at the bottom, this way the *content* of pages is 
the first to got attention.

but also from what i see, the 3 column layout is pretty standard in this 
kind of sites - see deviantART as an example 
(http://www.deviantart.com/) - this not means that we should not try 
something better

i would expected also Mozilla at least at the same level as OpenOffice
