      Description

      I have some reservations about the website footer. On the mobile view, the footer takes up almost the entire height of my device because the Overview, Community and About columns do not fit into one row. Secondly, on the desktop view, the header navigation is fixed at the top, so I can view the header menu while I'm at the footer of the page. Having same links visible on the header menu and footer doesn't make sense to me (Download, Community, Blog etc). I do see a lot of websites having menu links on the footer, but they don't have a fixed navbar.

      Suggestions : I looked up best practices for footers. I think we can reduce the number of links we display on the footer, especially the ones overlapping with header menu. We can also add some things (from what I read up on best practices) - form for subscribing to the mailing list, sitemap link, contact information, link to report a bug on the website, privacy policy/ terms of use (if we have) and maybe a subscription for the blog, since we have quite informative and regular blog posts. I also really like the idea of having a row of social media icons in the footer, which a lot of websites do. This will give us the freedom of adding many more icons than on the header menu.
