Description

I was linked to this website out-of-context, and while I see that GROMACS is
fast, free, and flexible, it's not easy to tell what it's for. Seems to be a
molecular dynamics simulator?

Prerhaps changing the tagline from "GROMACS: Fast, Free and Flexible"
to "GROMACS: Fast, Free and Flexible Molecular Dynamics Simulator" (perhaps
dropping the word 'simulator' there for concise-ness) would be better? or maybe
an 'About GROMACS' page linked from the front page of the site that gives a
quick overview of what GROMACS is useful for and a couple of it's most
important/unique features

Thanks for your comment.

There is now an obvious menu item "About GROMACS", previously named "Feature
list". Although it could be improved a bit it probably suffices to explain the
purpose. In addition I have added MD in the title.
