Many Web sites are for one use only and need to guide users through paths of decisions and data entering. Users use to feel insecure entering data in not well-known sites and don’t mind at all being guided in their first try. Goals Driven User Interfaces (GDUI) are based on an interaction style specially conceived for this type of users (occasional users). The traditional method that still prevails in the field of Web design makes it difficult to create neither usable user interfaces nor GDUI. Modern paradigm of Web use through Web 2.0 applications encourages the development of this interaction style as can be seen in this paper.
