Due to the popularity of the site, Rock have taken steps to enhance user functionality of which encompasses many new features. An updated springload homepage design has optimised the load time allowing customers who are using earlier browsers to access information quicker. Here at rockdirect.com we believe in investing in the future. Customers can now also experience improved access times to all sections of the site. The new design gives users faster access to all pages and product information listings. Furthermore, when loading required product information, the download time has been reduced significantly due to each notebook being assigned its own flash file.

The new design also provides customers who have visited the site previously with a "load once - view many" experience. Customers returning to the site, even after updates have been made, will have instant access to all sections, with reduced download time, ensuring a hassle free, multimedia extravaganza each and every visit.

Due to popular demand, we have also made improvements to our news and reviews. They each now have their own section, enabling faster access to desired articles. Direct links to and from the product section and relevant reviews have been put in place ensuring that navigation around the site is much more efficient. We have had many requests for larger text within the News and Reviews section:- this has also been implemented.
