Source
Computer networks and ISDN systems. 29(1997) no.8, S.1489-1496
Year

Abstract
Describes how usability testing was used to validate design recommendations WWW navigation aids. The results show a need for navigational aids that are related to the particular Website and located beneath browser buttons. Usability criteria were established that limits page changes to 4 and search times to 60 seconds for information retrieval
