in thread Prettier Perl websites

I don't know anything about Comet or WebSocket, and the mojolicious homepage doesn't target these sales points at all. In conclusion is not targeting me -- the early adopter type who *already* uses an mvc framework that he is fairly happy with, not to say I couldn't be more happy with Mojolicious. Instead you're doing what everyone is still doing by trying to target the dwindling audience of PHP users. That's what I see as the fault here. Your homepage is not noticeably different from any other mvc framework with generators.
No offense, lets examine my thought process as I traverse through your features:
* Full stack HTTP 1.1 client/server implementation (nothing new. s +ales point in 2003). * Builtin async io and prefork servers (cough?? explain.). * CGI and FastCGI support (nothing new. Catalyst too). * Code generators (Catalyst too. expired sales point in 2003). * Very clean object oriented API (Catalyst too. subjective). * Pure Perl (at best a moot point) without any hidden magic (which + is what everyone claims). * Example MVC web framework (Catalst, Maypole, Jifty et al?) named + Mojolicious (the name has no bearing) (aka. Perl on Rails).

    Then show what you would do different! I somehow doubt i could win the hearts of the "early adopter type" with a simple website, thats where i'm counting on blog articles and viral marketing. (which works even better than i expected so far) I don't think there is anything wrong with trying to get PHP users into the Perl world.
