Usability testing

Recently I viewed some videos that were made of users testing one of the websites that we created. An astonishing and put-me-back-on-earth experience what actually happens when you put people who are not so computer savvy behind your application. With a good intentions but often clueless, simply because there are no clues.

Today I stumbled upon a UK company called SimpleUsability. Their website has some good material on the why and how of usability testing. They also have a video on their site that gives you an idea what I am talking about. Particularly take not of the eye movement. Proof that people do not view web pages left to right and top to bottom.

And their website is easy to navigate, at least for me.
