                <h4>It is <a href="/about/">fast and powerful</a></h4>
                <p>Mercurial offers you the power and speed to efficiently handle <a href="/who/">projects of any size and kind</a><!--Reference: http://www.selenic.com/mercurial/wiki/ProjectsUsingMercurial -->. Every clone contains the whole project history, so committing, branching, tagging and merging are local operations which makes them fast and convenient. You can use a multitude of <a href="http://www.selenic.com/mercurial/wiki/Workflows">workflows</a> and easily enhance its functionality with <a href="http://www.selenic.com/mercurial/wiki/UsingExtensions">extensions</a>.</p>

                <p>You can follow our simple <a href="/guide/">guide</a> to learn how to revision your documents with Mercurial, or just use the <a href="/quickstart/">quick start</a> to get going instantly. <!--If you already know Subversion, please see <a href="mercurial_for_svn_users">Mercurial for svn users</a>.--></p>

                <p>Mercurial strives to deliver on each of its promises. Most tasks simply work on the first try and without requiring arcane knowledge. <!--(If one doesn't, that's most likely no feature but a <a href="http://selenic.com/mercurial/bugs/">bug</a>.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
