Abstract

Web is playing vital role in transformation of information technology and usage of website is increasing tremendously for all sorts of people. Usability plays important role in success of websites as they are used by people with different level of computer usage experience. Usability analysis is important to make website usage smooth and increase user satisfaction. Usability is neglected due to different reasons, like short development time, lack of usability knowledge of development team. There are few frameworks proposed for the usability evaluation of specific types of websites and for specific software. After detailed study of these frameworks we proposed General, Graphical and Structural Evaluation (GGSE) a general usability evaluation framework for usability evaluation of general purpose websites. A case study is performed to validate the results of GGSE. Case study proved the effectiveness of GGSE.
