This paper describes a preliminary study aimed at investigating the process of Web information problem solving with special focus on the analysis of cognitive skills and attitudes which play a key role in intentional learning. To this aim, an experiment has been organized, in which seven allegedly proficient Web-users were recorded and observed while solving the same simple information problem. Although all the subjects produced an acceptable solution, they differed widely with regard both to the cognitive strategies, the attitudes they displayed and the effectiveness of their process.
