User Interfaces have gone a major transformation since 1970s, all this was possible because of the advances in HCI and related technologies. The Principles of User Interface design has contributed much to the change that we see in the present day user interfaces and predominantly the web interfaces of various websites. This paper presents the various General Principles of User Interface Design and their relevance for present day web interfaces with full length analysis. Each principle is investigated over five different types of web interfaces with 30 different websites per type. The various properties that contribute to the principles have been investigated thoroughly and their statistical values are reported in their entirety
