Ease of Use Tesco.co.uk is an easy to navigate through site, with its toolbar at the top, with entries to "Home, Shopping, News and Features, Talking Tesco, Register and Sign-In, Help".

To find any one particular thing is very easy, although it's not so easy to use if you are a browser. Range of Products Tesco seemed to me like a more complete, if not in as much depth as amazon.co.uk. They offer food, clothes, books, music, computer/video games, electrical items, groceries and even flowers! However, there is a down side to all of this.
