Hi Cristian,

Thanks a lot for your work on the tour page.

Reading it shows an impressive amount of new features!

These are my comments on the page:

The layout has a few odd twists on my Fedora 19 machine using Firefox.
I have uploaded a screenshot of how it looks:

- The pictures all align to the left in a frame that spans the full main block. Yet the captions 
are centered in the same box. I presume you intended both of them to align centered ?

- The caption text is rather tiny on my system and very hard to read.

- The heading of each new feature stick pretty close to the screenshot area of the previous 
feature. That way it looks like the title belongs to the previous screenshot. Some added 
whitespace would fix that.

And lastly you have copied a typo from Bob's suggestion on duplicating invoices. It now reads
One click duplication of invoinces
instead of
One click duplication of invoices

Thanks again for working on this.
