Just a few decades ago, there were no such things as the Internet, websites, and mass produced digital technologies. The Internet is a critical aspect to the lives of most people on Earth. Whether people are using the Internet as part of the global economy or posting personal information on FaceBook, terms such as usability are very important. The paper will evaluate a website specifically dedicated to usability and spreading methods of effective usability. Websites take time, energy, and money to build; to build a website that people do not visit or that has low usability is a waste of those resources.
