The Wikipedia Usability Project aims to make Wikipedia easier for everyone to use.
This project aims to promote the application of usability best practices and/or web usability. Many other projects focus on the content of Wikipedia - this project focuses on the presentation of that content.
This project hopes to make Wikipedia easy and pleasant to use by applying itself to the following areas:
- Being intuitive - contents made understandable by everyone; using familiar and affordance interface design for universal usability
- Architecture - Organisation of information.
- Design - Visual appearance of Wikipedia; making it 'easy on the eyes', and standardized (all things of a certain type should appear in the same form).
- Interface - Making editing and other interactions easier.
- Compatibility - Cross-browser support; ease of use for everyone on any device and any browser
- Standards and accessibility - making use of W3C-recommended XHTML and CSS in a manner that promotes the above and accessibility
- Speed - loading time of Wikipedia page (yet to be added area)

- User:OwenBlacker/Usability — a disagreement between two users (one of whom is me) over matters of accessibility and usability that may be of interest to members of this project. — OwenBlacker 19:59, 26 September 2007 (UTC)
- At Talk:Isotope table (complete) we are debating a proposal by User:Greg L to put the article's full isotope table, and Isotope table (divided)'s table, in a single larger article. Much of the argument is about usability, as well as performance. Input from the Usability project might be useful. --JWB (talk) 16:49, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

- — SMcCandlish Talk⇒ ʕ(Õلō)ˀ Contribs. – I am all about usability. Getting proper full HTML support in MediaWiki has been a years-long goal of mine (with some progress actually made against initial developer reluctance to add support for things like <dfn> and <kbd>), along with undoing bad practices on Wikipedia that violate the letter or spirit of the HTML, XMTML or other specs, commonly accepted usability wisdom, or known accessibility maxims.
