Abstract. In this paper we present the results of a study that aims to evaluate the usability of three selected web services, based on eye--tracking and thinking aloud techniques. The gathered comments and observations, recapitulated and supported by particular measures, allow us to discover and describe typical user behavior pertaining to given tasks to solve.
