I have been using the updated W3C web site and I have to admit I still 
have not gotten used to it and I find it very difficult to find things. 
When I land on the home page - I really have no idea what sidebar 
navigation to pick to find the HTML 5 working group page.  I would guess 
"Web Architecture" -but going there still doesn't help me to find HTML 5.  
So, I try again, ok Web Design and Architecture.   So, I drill down again 
to HTML & CSS - then I have to search through that page until close to the 
bottom I find HTML and HTML Working Group.   Sorry, but that just isn't 
intuitive to me.   I often find myself not even bothering to try and find 
things and just use search.  Hopefully others find this new format easier 
to use but I definitely find in much harder.  Just my two cents - do with 
it as you wish.  Luckily my finger memory still finds w3.org/wai/gl and 
the other accessibility related URLs I have memorized.
