The level of simplicity and accessibility of use. It refers to what extent a website or application has an attractive design, is comprehensible in its presentation, and can be used intuitively by a new user.

The Dane Jacob Nielsen, regarded as being the father of web usability, defined the 10 heuristics or usability rules.
