|the security problems occur somewhere soon or later.|
|2.||Transfer Speed: Internet is getting more popular in the world than before, the loads of transferring information become heavier than ever. Unless the shared band width of the internet is expended enough to overcome the slow transfer speed transferring large volume data, communication through Internet will probably still a time consuming task for a big file.|
|3.||Layer: Because the user interface on WWW is organized with WebPages, the screen must be changed from one to another when users select any function of it. Every time the main screen changes, users would feel that they switch to another layer. Too many layers could make the users to get lost in the system structure.|
|4.||Limitation: languages, such as HTML, are not enough to handle all the functions of an interface should equipped with. Hopefully, some webpage design languages will be developed with handy plug-in functions to overcome the above shortage. In the near future, a standard language, such as XML, can be fully developed to facilitate the easy webpage design.|
In this research, not only the WebPages are connected with the database, but also the office work and customer service processes are integrated through the WWW by the web browsers. With the evolving of Internet, the development of web technologies will impact the interface design of software systems that enable new ways of business communications and satisfy unique user preferences.
