Usability Friction is a site about usability. We have 1000s of readers each month who are interested in design, aesthetics and what gives a product the edge and makes it something you’d want to recommend.

Usability Friction appeals to a wide cross section of international readers. The majority come from an IT background, but there are a large number of people who just take an interest in what makes things usable. Our readers appreciate quality products; their opinions are respected and they are consulted regularly for advice on purchases by their friends.
