Information about any thing or service of your choice is available on the internet, through web sites. This is due to the popularity of web designing, which is creation of web pages containing information of a particular product or service or any data, useful to the general public, which has given rise to the formation of websites and are made available over the internet through the web hosting service providers. But even in this universal method of getting data, users raise a lot of issues which they feel hinder them from making the best use of this latest form of technology. Let us have a look at the different usability-related issues of web designing.

The most common problem which users feel, regarding the usage of information on websites, is the layout of the web pages. Users often feel that the contents of a web page are not designed in a way that allows users access to all the information displayed in the website. The inclusion of many tables and diagonal or vertical representation of text hinder the users from understanding the contents of the web page. Also, sometimes the colors used for the web page, which is a part of the web designing process, maybe too bright which may disturb the users while reading the contents. The usage of pictures as background may also make the text unclear to read. The colors must be decided in such a way that the background should be of a lighter shade and the text in a comparatively brighter shade. The text not being legible is another issue raised by users of websites. Unavailability of images, due to improper source code formation by the web designer, also leaves users dissatisfied. Sometimes the contents of the website move away from the purpose of the website. This weakens the popularity of a website. It is the duty of the web designers to take note of what goes into the web site.

Another important issue which hinders the usability of web sites is the links provided in websites appear broken or divert to cheat links. These broken links prove as barriers from the users getting their required information from the website. Broken links or irrelevant links are perceived as a low quality of the website thus harming the image of the website owner. Care should be taken by web designers to check the links before adding them to the source code of the web pages.

The users like to see the websites updated using the latest technology. This makes the website to appear to be updated and containing all the latest information. Web designers should make note of this and web designing should be done using the latest technology.
