What feature should be changed? Please provide the URL of the feature if possible.
The "Awesome Demos" section of the MDN homepage

What problems would this solve?
At the time of this writing, one of the demos listed on the MDN homepage only works in WebKit. These demos are not good examples of what is possible with the open Web (and may not even work for some people), so we should not promote them.

Who would use this?
Anyone who views the MDN homepage

What would users see?
The "Awesome Demos" section would only highlight demos that have not been flagged in some way. For example, bug 844154 describes flagging a demos that only work in certain browsers and bug 742117 describes flagging demos that require non-ubiquitous features (like Orientation). Demos like these would not make good candidates for the "Awesome Demos" section.

What would users do? What would happen as a result?
Just what they are doing now -- clicking those demo thumbnails to try the demos out. The only difference is that the demos they click will be good examples of what is possible with the open Web, and would work for them more consistently.

Is there anything else we should know?
This assumes that the "Awesome Demos" section will still be there when we redesign the homepage. If not, we should apply the same concept wherever we do highlight demos.
