Website usability is all the rage these days. Why? Because if people can’t use your website, if it’s too cumbersome and confusing, they will leave (and go visit your competitor’s website!).
The United States government has gotten into the act — in a good way. Their usability website offers free advice on how to make a website usable.
Specifically, check out their Tools area for great resources.
Great piece. I feel that designers are also making their sites too fancy with things like flash intros etc. Web sites need to be easy to use.
