The area of web usability has long intrigued researchers. It has been widely accepted that for a website to be successful, the level of usability has to be high. The reason is because of poorly designed website. While many web designers largely fall on their prior experience to tell if a web site design is good or bad, there is a need to be able to provide clear methodology to do so[2,3]. An article by Goldsborough which quoted Nielson, reported that while many web designers think their websites are important, generally it is users who will determine the relevance of these websites. In this paper, we discuss the methodology of usability and the survey conducted for the webpage that we have done.
