Since its establishment, the World Wide Web has ¤ourished. While advances have been made in the technological aspects like web organization, web data structure, searching within the Web, etc., little attention has been paid to the development theories of human-web interaction (HWI). HWI is deŽned as the processes that take place when humans interact with a system on the Web in order to access and retrieve content. It can also be deŽned as study, plan, and design of what happens when a user navigates with the Web. Nature of the Web makes this procedure a little bit challenging. An exponential growth of the Web (in terms of the number of available websites and applications on it) has been observed since last few decades. However, the design of an effective website that meets user needs still remains a challenge. The goal of the HWI is to meet this challenge and to produce usable and safe web-based systems and applications. For this, the developers of such systems must attempt to understand the tentative users; develop tools and techniques to enable building suitable systems; and achieve efŽcient, effective, and safe interactions.
