Summary/Abstract: In recent years web applications have become more and more complex on the inside in order to better suit the needs of their users. Thanks to the increase in quality of available hardware systems, the performance aspect of computer software has been put a bit in the background, while code clarity, usability, flexibility and robustness are discussed frequently. In this paper the cost of designing user-friendly web applications is analyzed based on database complexity, server load, business logic security and browser performance. Several problems of balancing design approaches aimed at cleaner user interface are discussed. The study is conducted as a part of a scientific project to gather statistical data about academic activities, implemented in University of Economics – Varna.
