Some experts believe the next generation of the Web will provide users with richer and more relevant browsing experiences; making searching the internet and sifting through the available myriad of information faster and easier. They envision the Web 3.0 browser will able to make multiple search tasks easier than ever. Examples given include a user typing in a complex multi-step request (“find the closest bowling alley and nearby pizza parlor”) and the Web 3.0 browser establishing location, conducting the complex search of local establishments, including researching ratings and reviews, and then analyzing and organizing the results – making succinct recommendations on both the bowling alley as well as a where to get the best pizza pie in town.
