Nelsen is opinionated, and his frank comments are thought provoking and entertaining to read. Much of what he says is based on user testing of web site designs.
The Full archive link leads to a page with all previous column titles. The titles that have been read most often are identified with bold text. Nielsen's server data indicates that his "Top ten mistakes of Web design" (May 1996) column has been viewed almost one million times.
Nielsen's main page also has links to his personal recommendations regarding books and hotlinks to other websites with information on usability.
