useful usability testing

"In the real world, there is never enough time or money to fix all the problems that crop up. Weigh the costs of fixing the problem against the benefits to the user."

the simpson quote in the begininng of this totally sums up how some people approach certain websites. I never thought about how doing a usability test would help. I see now that having a little experiemnt like that will help point out things about the website that you wouldnt think about fixing. I'm sure that companies that make products and even Tv networks do their own usability testing to find out what the public need or likes. It even seems simple but when broken down to things like quanititive and qualitive data, one can really see the results that this can give a website.
