25-point Website Usability Checklist
Failing to remember all tasks and worrying wonderful ideas might get lost? Here’s the easy way to keep track and remember.  You’d be able to understand, see and know exactly what to do so you never miss anything.

Dr. Pete describes and rationalizes all of the sections and line items in the list, but you can also download the checklist as a simple, 1-page PDF.

Not all points are necessarily applicable to all sites.
