We all have heard about transition from Web 1.0 to Web 2.0 technology. We are often told by tech gurus that currently we are experiencing Web 2.0 and future is about Web 3.0! But have you ever wondered what all these versions mean and how does it affect the way you use and interact with internet?  Let’s have a quick look at version history and features so far.

  1. Web 1.0 was “Read-only” web where information was created by website owner and users were just able to browse and read the content.
  2. Web 2.0 is “Read-Write Web”, Here the content is created by everyone. Here “Sharing is Caring” and focus is mainly on groups and communities.
  3. Web 3.0 is going to be “Personalized Portable Web”. Information is captured, curated and collaborated through smart tools which allows you to create live content mash-ups and allows you to customize your own Web-experience.

 

In this post we are going to discuss some of the tools that you can use to start experiencing  future of Web 3.0 right away!

(1)  Wepware: (http://Wepware.com)

Suddenly feeling bored?  Listen to the song that you captured from YouTube recently, again just a drag and drop live another video tile on the same page! Oh but wait what about that business tour that you are supposed to do within a month. You yesterday browsed dozens of sites and now again want to compare flight and hotel prices without leaving the page?
