In this paper is described an agile methodology for Web development based on User Stories. The main objective in this methodology is to have a more real relationship among application code and requirements. Thus, the development team and the user may come to have a greater understanding during the application development process. It is divided in three disciplines, each one refining the User Stories, from requirements specification using the Navigation Model and Story Cards until the execution of these User Stories to guide the coding. The team can also use these Stories as acceptance tests, which represent the user behaviour when using the system. With all this, in the end the development team may have more guarantees that the Web application represents what the user wants.
