From the Back Cover
Yesterday's Web looked far different from today's Web, and tomorrow's Web will look more different still. Amidst all of this change, however, one aspect of Web use remains the same: The sites that offer the best, easiest, most intuitive experience are the ones people visit again and again. To ensure that your
sites provide that experience, you need this essential guide from usability guru Steve Krug
that distills his years of on-the-job experience into a practical primer on the do's and don'ts of good Web design.
In this second edition, Steve adds three new chapters--in the same wry and entertaining style as the original--that explain why people really
leave Web sites (Usability as Common Courtesy
), how to make sites usable and accessible (Web Accessibility, CSS, and You)
, and the art of surviving executive design whims (Help! My Boss Wants Me to ____
), plus a new preface and updated recommended reading.
