"Avoid usability surprises by including cost-effective usability activities throughout your product development life cycle." "Better usability engineering methods can help you avoid the four most frequently listed reasons for delay in software projects: frequent requests for changes by users, overlooked tasks, users' lack of understanding of their own requirements, and insufficient user-analyst communication and understanding. By implementing the methods discussed, you will be able to improve your user interfaces for software (or other products) immediately." "Systematic usability engineering leads to better user interfaces that make your system easier to learn and your users more productive. This helps reduce the frequency and seriousness of user errors, and makes the users like the system better."--Jacket

Quick. You have 10 seconds to show your face to the world. What does your homepage say? In a world of information overload and dying dot.coms, your homepage must grab the attention of visitors, tell them where they are, and let them know where they can go. Does your site pass the test? Homepage Usability is all about making that first impression. Is your tag line effective? Can visitors find your search box? How difficult is the page to navigate? What percentage of your homepage is devoted to actual content? By putting 50 of today's top sites to the test, web usability experts Jakob Nielsen and Marie Tahir show you what makes for good - and not so good - first impressions. This book contains hundreds of examples that you can employ on your own homepage. Apply the best. Avoid the worst. -- from back cover
