Web has developed into a platform where applications live as services. This is referred to as Web 2.0. The next version, Web 3.0, refers to using the Web in a new way in new domains. In addition to realizing semantic web, Web 3.0 includes other advantageous concepts too. This paper discusses about mashups in Web 3.0 and describes how mashups will be an integral part of it. Moreover, we will point out some remarkable technical solutions that enable new kind of mashups and speculate about the time when these mashups can be fully implemented and realized.
