Organizations are placing increasing emphasis on the usability aspects of World Wide Web (WWW orWeb) site design. To accurately measure Web site usability, a comprehensive set of metrics is required. This paper reviews guidelines for good Web site design and some of the methods used for the usability testing of Web sites. The current metrics used for Web site and user interface usability testing are reviewed. An extended set of metrics that can be used for measuring the complexity and usability of Web sites is presented. The relationship between complexity and usability is then discussed. This relationship can be used to design a Web site that's usability is maximized when optimal values for its complexity metrics are found.
