The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's redesigned Web site went live last month, with a leaner look, easier navigation and some renamed features.
The site, at www.ferc.gov
, now has horizontal navigation bars across the top of its pages. Drop-down boxes activate when a user scrolls over the section tabs.
The redesign effort included rearranging information on the site and installing links between related documents.
FERC also renamed some of its features, at least partly to eliminate confusion among users, the commission said. FERC's document retrieval system, for example, has been renamed from FERRIS to eLibrary. Other changes were simpler, such as substituting eForms for Forms and eFilings for Filings.
