    Use justify or not in website design?


    Generally justify alignment is give the clear way for content.but mostly don't use this alignment.
    What is the reason for this?

    Justifying blocks of text is bad for reading. Inconsistent word spacing is hard on the eyes and makes reading a page of text a lot harder than it needs to be. This is exasperated online where paragraphs are more often than not more narrow than they would be in print, which leads to even worse problems.

    For some more light reading...

    Never Justify Type on the Web
    Don't use fully justified text alignment on your website

    Do not justify the text alignment. I think that most website readers prefer to have their text set out in fairly narrow columns, and with the text aligned left. This makes it easier to read. Justifying text – especially on the web – means spreading out the words on the line to span the whole column. The result is big gaps between the words. Sometimes these gaps line up and form what’s called “rivers” within the text block. The point of text is to be read, so don’t sacrifice that just to have some crisp lines along the edges.
