Indeed it does. I wouldn't rule out the possibility that it's deliberate. As a philosophical question, should the main page be missionary oriented or member oriented?

The headers are still there, so you can go to the sections or tools you need. I'm wondering where to find the member oriented landing page. About Us > News is somewhat like the old main page.

The Church Newsroom article from March 5, 2019, where ChurchofJesusChrist.org was announced, mentioned that Mormon.org would, after some time, be folded into ChurchofJesusChrist.org:
https://newsroom.churchofjesuschrist.org/article/church-name-alignment

The Church’s official website will become ChurchofJesusChrist.org. This change is effective today, March 5, 2019, when the domain name ChurchofJesusChrist.org begins pointing to the LDS.org home page. In the coming months, the ChurchofJesusChrist.org domain name will replace what were the following:
  • LDS.org (ChurchofJesusChrist.org)
  • MormonNewsroom.org (Newsroom.ChurchofJesusChrist.org)
Eventually, Mormon.org will be incorporated into the new domain as well. However, because its primary audience is those outside the Church, merging it with the Church member-focused ChurchofJesusChrist.org will take more time.

Work is underway to unify and restructure all these websites into a new, more cohesive and personalized experience under the ChurchofJesusChrist.org domain. Until that time, Mormon.org will change to ComeuntoChrist.org.

I experienced the redirect yesterday, but not today. Very frustrating when the changes over the past year or so have only served to make it harder (for me, at least) to find things that used to be easy to find. I have provided feedback in the past - I don't bother go give feedback any longer with the website interface as it is obvious that no one is listening. Or maybe I'm the only person in the entire world who doesn't like the changes so I just gave up.

I have found that the Church absolutely excels at making things very difficult to find starting from the home page. I save links all the time, especially when I find something I really like or even need, because I am afraid I will not be able to figure out the path to get there again.
