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"?

User Centered Web Design - Addison Wesley

User Centered Web Design - Addison Wesley

Status: New - In User Centred Web Design, usability expert John Cato outlines a design ... more

process that has a Web site visitor's needs in
mind. He offers both theoretical discussions and
real-world case studies. Although the
illustrations in this compact book are small and
not always well-printed, the insightful advice is
clearly communicated and would be valuable to
anyone setting out on the open sea of Web
development. And, with its analyses of various
corporate Web sites, User Centred Web Design
addresses particularly important issues for those
involved with e-business. This is not a software
how-to book or a showcase of what's cutting-edge
on the Web today. But it does inspire the sort of
careful thinking found in Don Norman's The
Psychology of Everyday Things. Throughout the
book, Cato offers diagrams, paradigms, and to-do
lists, the first being his looping description of
one's relation to the world: Awareness >
Understanding > Action. His model for designing is
Discover > Design > Use. Discovery includes the
vision, exploration, "the 'Ah ha' moment". Design
is where it is all born, and Use involves market
testing and verification. These are just a few of
the theoretical game plans he offers. Cato uses
case studies to show how one can make user
profiles contribute to the design process. It
feels very similar to learning good marketing
skills in business school. The book also takes a
careful look at the visual techniques used on many
sites today, breaking down what works and what
doesn't, even proposing alternatives. For example,
is the user confused over whether something is a
button? Cato writes, "Make it buttony, and employ
mouseovers to give confirmatory feedback", and "Go
for creative ways of grabbing attention; they do
not have to be large things." You'll also learn
how to push your creativity, get over your fears
and believe in yourself (good all-around life
advice). There's even a section that looks at
design issues for Web-enabled cell phones. This
book won't wow you with its visuals, but the ideas
and inspiration within may help you wow others
with your Web design. --Angelynn Grant
