Here’s a screenshot:
Personally, I think it’s a big improvement over the old design, which was starting to show its age.
From Gov. Henry’s press release announcing the makeover:
The site now features translation available in 8 languages and the ability to “Share” with eleven different social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook, and MySpace. Another new feature is a dashboard on the right column of the homepage providing quick access to real-time content such as State Surplus Auction items in the “Shop OK.gov” panel and the status of state bills in the “Bill Tracker” panel.
Oklahomans are invited to visit OK.gov and provide feedback utilizing the online “Feedback” form located in the “Support” menu. The portal also offers Live Chat Help during normal Oklahoma government business hours, available through the Help Center located in the right content area.
As an open-government advocate, I especially like the e-Services page. It has links to some of the useful tracking databases used by various state agencies, as well as a kind of “one-stop shop” for professional licenses and permits.
I’m still making my way through all the changes, but let me know if you see something you like or don’t like about the new design and navigation.
