The new landing page is out!

A bunch of videos, and still maintaining 99/100 Page Speed score ✨ (only on Desktop πŸ˜‚)

Roast my landing page! πŸ‘‰ ImageImage
I still have a lot of items to work on the page to make it 100% my likings, but I'll have to accept it as it is for now. πŸ˜…

Need to move on to other stuff, otherwise, I'll be stuck at optimizing the landing page forever πŸ˜‚
A list of non-obvious things I want to show off because I already spent way too much time on them πŸ˜‚:

– There are both light/dark theme depends on the current system mode.
– The page (and the videos) work even if JavaScript is disabled
– All videos/images are lazy-loaded
