A CDE Definition
Testing the usability of software by having random people try it (whomever walks by in the hall). Hallway testing often uncovers issues that are not discovered by groups of regular testers who are more familiar with software in general. See usability.
Usability is how easy hardware or software is to operate, especially for the first-time user. Considering how difficult applications and websites can be to navigate through, one would wish that all designers took usability into greater consideration than they do. See hallway testing, good user interface, user interface, RTFM and usability lab.
