New Web sites for federal courts, Commerce Dept.

Two government Web sites launched overhauls on Monday -- vast improvements over their old online homes.

USCourts.gov, the online home of the federal court system, now includes court locator, court services and employment links above the fold.

Commerce.gov is the new home of the Commerce Department and a prominent link to its Blog and a cleaner right rail linking to the department's 12 bureaus.

The department's staffers used the open-source content management tool Drupal to build the new site. It's the same system that runs Whitehouse.gov .

“By building the site internally and using open-source technology that doesn’t require expensive software licenses, we now have a site that looks and performs better than our previous site, and we have developed resources that will help us efficiently build other visually-modern, technological-advanced websites in the months and years to come," said the department's New Media Director T. Neil Sroka.
