I agree here with David. The contrast of background against text is a
bit low. Try running some Accessibility test that checks the contrast of
text against background and you will see low scores. To alot of
people, not beiing able to find the "text" alias content fast, can be
hampering and will lead them away. I dont even mean the choice of your
colors, but more the hues you use.
With your design, maybe having to click is not optimal. Since you
it, when no JS is there. Otherwise simply slide content into place when
you mouse over, for example.
Also i noticed that when you turn of JS completly all one will see is
all your content in one long run. Why not make the use of JS unobtrusive
and seperate it so nicely like you already do with CSS/HTML? Makes your
site alot more accessible to more people. I like the JS effects alot
