The utility of usability evaluation for the improvement of design for websites is discussed. Some preliminary versions of a commercial website that provides information, reviews and rating to its member, are evaluated. The evaluation process comprises some representative subjects performing a usability evaluation on the existing version of the site by using typical use scenarios of design and client teams. The results show that after testing the redesign, significant reduction in the problems at the severity level and in the number of their occurences between final and initial version was noticed.
