    Very open ended question:

    What web design concepts do you think will be the epitome of web 3.0?

    Kind of hard to say since many disagree with the term Web 2.0; some say we are already in Web 4.0. I am among the group that says Web 2.0 is a bad buzzword. We are still using HMTL CSS and Javascript as the front end tools and hasn't changed since the mid 1990's. Even the recent libraries we enjoy in HTML5 are built upon Javascript.

    If you are asking what's the new big thing? Mobile browsing and cloud computing.

    Nothing, since as Kayo pointed out we haven't figured out what Web 2.0 is and was supposed to be and probably won't for another 20 years.

    Sure we do, but static HTML pages isn't it. Generating server-side HTML was around since the mid-1990s. But that's my point...where's the line?

    Web 2.0 was a duplicitous term.
    1. It referred to the dawn of Single-Page-Application capabilities due to the introduction of XHR / AJAX, which made the web a "fatter" experience.
    2. It was used to define a style of design, with bigger buttons, text, titles & margins, muted tones, lower contrast & subtle gradients, and rounded corners, making use of bigger 1024+ resolutions and less content smashed into tiny spaces.

    The "Web 2.0" design aesthetic is still predominant today, reinforced by the advent of CSS3 gradients and corner-radiuses.

    If there's a "Web 3.0" design, it would probably be responsive design, adjusting to browser sizes from mobile to 2560+ widths. But that's not a style, that's more just adaptive layout.

    Web 3.0 has long been predicted to be the result of the Semantic Web Initiative - the use of new W3 technologies like RDF and SPARQL to turn the web into a giant database of information usable by many applications other than just web browsers.

    What Web 3.0 will really be remains to be seen.

    What he said. The big problem with attempting to define a 3.0 as opposed to a 2.0 is that a 3.0 would have to represent a major version upgrade. There would have to be something of significance on the horizon that changed the web game as we know it. There really isn't anything close as of yet.

    SPARQL sounds interesting; I was fascinated when I read about GoogleLookup (for Google Spreadsheets) which was unfortunately discontinued before I could even try it out. But the idea of the web being a massive cube of 'logical' information (and not just cat memes) maybe not be Web 2.0 or 3.0 but its a Web +1 somewhat.

    Also as smoseley says.. rounded corners. For me, that's 2.0 right there. So that makes Web 2.0 mostly a sequel the producers thought of releasing to cash in on the first movie.. I just hope Web 3.0 isn't all about 3D.
