PETALING JAYA: The Star media group’s Bahasa Malaysia portal, mStar Online, has been updated with a fresher, breezier look that enables easier navigation of the site and new features that bring a more exciting presentation on entertainment, current, business and sports news.

“The new look, which greeted readers on Sunday, has made mStar Online neater, more attractive, colourful and easier to navigate, with a better photo play,” said Star Online executive editor Rozaid A. Rahman.

He pointed out that the most significant change is the new sliding panel called “Main Display” on top of the site.

The slider rotates 10 top items with pictures at an automatic interval of seven seconds.

“Visitors may find important news of the day, be it political, current happenings, entertainment or sports, on our Paparan Utama,” said Rozaid.

The portal, he said, has not overlooked the popularity of its entertainment section, which has been steadily gaining a large following since mStar Online started in August 2005.

The section is now a channel with more sub-sections to it.

“Now with its own landing page, readers will be able to access a wider range of entertainment news under five sub-sections: Berita Hiburan (Entertainment News), Stail (Style), Bintang Global (Global Stars), K-Pop and Wayang (Movies),” he said.

Its news stories can also be better digested under four tabs: current, court, crime and world.

“We have also introduced the business news section to report on the latest business and entrepreneurial updates,” Rozaid said.

The sports section has been enhanced and presented under three most popular categories – Bola Sepak (Football), Raket (Racket), F1 & Motor – as well as another on other sports called Sukan Ekstra.

Kolumnis (Columnists) and Lain-Lain (Others) complete the six channels on the site.

Rozaid said hopefully, with the new improved look, mStar Online ( would be able to attract more readers who want variety to their news.
