A while ago I was lucky enough to receive a free copy of ‘WebUser’ Magazine, from Freeinuk.com. This magazine covers a variety of topics related to the Internet and issues surrounding the subject. It is probably one of the easiest to understand for a computer novice such as myself. The language used is not flooded with fancy computer jargon and so is accessible to complete novices such as myself. Phew!

Readers and Hints pages is probably my favourite section of the whole magazine, because ordinary people write in with some simple or complicated problems and advice is given my the professionals. The good thing is that they are often common problems and tips are always helpful, even the simplest problem is addressed and helpful hints or comments are provided to make computer use easier.

Advertisements are few within this 90page magazine, but those present are computer orientated. The current issue of ‘Web User’ is available at your local newsagent at the bargain price of £1.20, so hurry while stocks last!

*My Copy*
The copy of ‘WebUser’ Magazine, which I received, was issue 4. It covered the following topics in a simple to follow, step by step guide:
1) Choosing a default browser.
2) Installing AltaVista, Quick Search.
3) Java.
4) Saving money by working offline.
5) Sending pictures by email.
6) Set up a FireWall.
7) Sort out email by category.


**Published**

This magazine is issued on a weekly basis. It is currently on sale for £1.20 but subscribing by direct debit regularly every 6 months reduces the costs to £12.87 instead of £15.60. At £1.20 it’s worth a browse to see what you think.


‘WebUser’ Magazine also contains features about Internet auction sites too. I must subscribe on Direct Debit and then I will keep up to date and not forget to buy the latest issue! (The cost may now have increased, as I have not brought it for a few weeks). It is quite informative and gives a guide as to what to find and where to find it. ‘WebUser’ Magazine is available from most supermarkets and newsagents. If it is not on the shelf, just ask!

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
