Abstract

Manual process of evaluation of web sites is still a difficult and time consuming task. The technique of Web Usability Probe (WUP) that supports remote usability evaluation of these sites. They consider clients side of the data on user interaction for JavaScript events. The tools perform evaluation of any web site by exploiting a proxy based architecture and facilitates the evaluator to compare of performance between user behaviour as an optimal of action. We developed a tool to automate a significant part of the activities involved. Within the experiments on a small service-oriented website we identified usability problems, which were cross-validated by domain experts, and quantified usability improvement by the higher task success rate and lower time and effort for given tasks after implementation if suggested corrections. In this method of provides an initial validation of the effectiveness of our method.
