Abstract
Internet has become ubiquitous and organizations have moved from the traditional storage using physical files localized in cabinets to online remote storage accessible over websites. Over the years, different website evaluation tools have been developed to assist web administrators with website maintenance functions. Prior to a proper website assessment using majority of such tools, the web administrator would have to access each one differently reasons being that each tool is developed to measure different quality parameters. Later, Fuzz-web was developed to capture more parameters but with a limitation wherein the system depends on some of the evaluation tools for inputs, the implication being that where such tools are not available there will be an express failure of fuzz-web. To overcome the foregoing problems, this paper is aimed at developing a Fuzzy-Based Website Quality Assurance System. It employs fuzzy logic principles, exploiting the inherent power of the Java programming language to evolve a system that can be used to detect broken links, slow loading pages, Hypertext Transfer Protocol-related errors in a website, and the overall quality status of a website. The system relieves the user of the gross dependence on several external evaluation tools and with the information provided, enhances the proactive web administrators to be proactive in amending errors.
