I got a free trial copy of Webuser (the no nonsense guide to the best of the net) from freeinuk. It covers a multitude of topics regarding the web or web related topics.

I would have to say that this is probably the best magazine I have seen covering this subject.

In issue 4 it covered web jargon, I knew roughly what Java is but try explaining that to someone who has now idea, this magazine did that. It also had step-by-step guides to:
 Set up your own firewall
 Save money by working off line
 Install AltaVistaís quick search
 Send pictures in your emails
 Sort your emails by category
 Choose a default browser

It also had features on Net auctions, domain names and facts on the net.

IN ISSUE 6 CIAO & DOOYOO GET A 4 OUT OF 5 RATING. That was the highest any information/opinion page got, (page 51 Getting customer advice online) & they equalled the Which rating. We all know how valued Which opinions are.

Issue 6 has information on the best sites for free help to solve computer problems, web etiquette and how to bag a bargain holiday.

It is hard to describe a magazine to you that comes out fortnightly and features and articles will change each issue, however I hope this gives you an overview of the type of topic covered.


I personally have found it very useful. I had to debug both my Dadís and my computer after he shared his virus with me. I knew what antivirus software and firewalls were about but didnít have an up to date version. (No Iím lying I didnít have any Iíd been meaning to for ages but hadnít got around to it. Fortunately Wulise had so I didnít spread it to her) Dad learnt all about firewalls from issue 4.


It is currently on sale for 99p and if you subscribe and pay by direct debit every 6 months it costs £12.87 instead of £15.60. I bought issue 6 at a smallish Tesco store and would therefore assume that most good newsagents and supermarkets would stock it. At 99p itís worth a browse to see what you think.

They also have a web-site, which as yet I have not checked out but the address is www.web-user.co.uk .

I was so impressed that I am going to subscribe to it regularly.

Great opinion but I'm not really into these kinda things! I have just updated an opinion on a perfume of mine which I wrote back in January, you rated it fairly helpful, I was wondering whether you would go back and re-read my opinion and maybe re-rate it, thanks and cheers, ~M~

Should your title read "English" instead of "Engligh"?

James Kalbach Designing Web Navigation: Optimizing the User Experience

James Kalbach Designing Web Navigation: Optimizing the User Experience

Thoroughly rewritten for today's web environment, this bestselling book offers a fresh ... more

look at a fundamental topic of web site
development: navigation design. Amid all the
changes to the Web in the past decade, and all the
hype about Web 2.0 and various rich" interactive
technologies the basic problems of creating a good
web navigation system remain. "Designing Web
Navigation" demonstrates that good navigation is
not about technology - it's about the ways people
find information and how you guide them. Ideal for
beginning to intermediate web designers managers
other non-designers and web development pros
looking for another perspective "Designing Web
Navigation" offers basic design principles
development techniques and practical advice with
real-world examples and essential concepts
seamlessly folded in. How does your web site serve
your business objectives? How does it meet a
user's needs? You'll learn that navigation design
touches most other aspects of web site
development. This book: provides the foundations
of web navigation and offers a framework for
navigation design; paints a broad picture of web
navigation and basic human information behavior;
demonstrates how navigation reflects brand and
affects site credibility; helps you understand the
problem you're trying to solve before you set out
to design; thoroughly reviews the mechanisms and
different types of navigation; explores
"information scent" and "information shape";
explains "persuasive" architecture and other
design concepts; covers special contexts such as
navigation design for web applications; and
includes an entire chapter on tagging. While
"Designing Web Navigation" focuses on creating
navigation systems for large information-rich
sites serving a business purpose the principles
and techniques in the book also apply to small
sites. Well researched and cited this book serves
as an excellent reference on the topic as well as
a superb teaching guide. Each chapter ends with
suggested reading and a set
