In the emerging electronic environment, the creation of customer-centered Web sites is becoming increasingly important. We report on two exploratory studies on user perceptions of using Web sites. We first use Kano's (1984) Model of Quality to conduct an investigation of quality features in the Web environment. An independently conducted study later expands the first study by addressing several limitations. The results of both studies suggest that: the Kano quality model can be used as a framework to control Web site quality in terms of three quality types and the time transition of the quality nature; not every feature is regarded as equally important within a Web domain; and different domains have different rankings of important features, although there are certain features that are regarded as highly important among domains studied. These studies provide some empirical evidence on user perceptions of Web site quality features and lead to further theoretical investigations.
