When I bought my latest Rubik's Cube, it came with a Solutions Hints Booklet. On page 21 of that booklet it says:
"RUBIKfact: Theoretically the shortest path to solving Rubik's Cube from any unscrambled position is as few as 22 twists. So far no one has succeeded in demonstrating this method".
I find it much easier to solve F2L with the cross on the bottom. When I learnt how to solve I always started by forming the cross on the bottom so it is just natural for me. I have heard a lot of people also like to have the cross on the left.
Thanks for the feedback. It is a new website so I do plan on adding some extra content. I am planning on putting together an advanced method for solving the Rubik's Cube. And it will most likely be the fridrich method.
