New Vatican Website: Hit or MIss?

Actually I was not a fan of the old Vatican website and frankly I don't see the improvement in the new one.
I've often gone away from the Vatican website not finding what I want and searching elsewhere.

That's a shame because I know that the information must  be there... somewhere. I do want the Vatican website to be a place of frequent visits from Catholics an non-Catholics alike.

I know they have unique challenges that no other website in the world has - technically, culturally and theologically. I want to be charitable. I just don’t get it. You can view it here:
They are guilty of at least 2 of the 7 deadly sins of parish website design (which also apply to them) and a long list of venial ones.
