Layout is the basic architecture of any website. It must be clear in terms of positioning of the text, images and other content elements on the website and also, must be user friendly. By user friendly I mean that clear understanding of the user behaviour on the website is very important to be able to develop something that is in accordance with the user behaviour on the website. Also, all web browsers and devices must support the website. And, as we know that there are many browsers and devices, so it is a challenging task to develop User interface.

Functionality or actions need to be user friendly and simple. These aim at adding the ease to browse pages and information on the website for the user. Hence, it is for the Users to feel good while surfing the website or web application. If functionality for a web application is being designed, there must be a help document for flow and functionality for user guidelines.

Look and feel is an important element of website and web applications. Placement of content, images, links, spacing, colour combinations, fonts are factors to consider for better UI development of a website or web application.
