unecessary heavy image asset
i noticed while loading the tor front page that the circle-pattern.png in the page footer weighs more than half a megabyte. this is probably just a mistake while deploying assets, since the image is displayed very small compared to its real size.
since the image contains only simple geometric shapes, i would recommend using an svg for that and optimize that. if not, use a png, but compressed and resized properly.
please be considerate about the users of tor (3rd world, slow connections, mobile, etc..) when embedding images. otherwise, congrats on the new design! very good work
