Web Heuristics are guidelines for good web usability. Every company should have their own proprietary set of guidelines for product usability. But from what I've seen, most start up companies (in tech) focus more on rapid growth at the cost of actual usability.
I am working on developing my own set of web 3.0 heuristics which I intend to publish on this blog for the benefit of all. My new set of heuristics will take into account newer internet trends and interfaces which I don't think are addressed by previously published guidelines. Like aspects of community, user generated content, sharing, rich media, and Flash interactions.
I want to hear from you!
If you are a web designer/developer and have some recommendations for research materials, please leave a comment. Not a developer? Comment about what sites you think are easy to use and which ones you hate. Thank you!
