Websites keeps getting more important in business and other aspects of society. Making the websites as usable as possible is crucial as difficult to use systems tend to frustrate users, which might lead to users leaving or lost revenue for a business. Usability testing is needed to identify and fix those issues. Manual tests in usability labs can be very time consuming and costly. An automated system could reduce time and cost of testing, but are often too focused on one aspect to give a clear view of what needs to be fixed. A system to improve this is needed. 4 separate modules focusing on different aspects of testing the information structure and navigation of a website are implemented and tested. The modules are combined in a system that gather the results from each module and provide a better overview of the usability issues of a website.
