Abstract: Recently, more and more attention is being paid to emotions in the field of Human-Computer Interaction. However, there has been little research that focuses on the relation between emotions and usability or 'web design'. In this context, we examined the correlation between the emotions of the user and the usability of the applications he or she is working with. The main findings reveal that there does not exist a connection between web design and emotions. To some extent, computer and internet experience correlate with the user's emotions. Finally, our results show that there is no significant connection between the application's content and the user's emotions.
