Java and Navigator 2.0 Win Hyper Awards

Sun Microsystems' Java and Netscape Communication's Navigator 2.0 have won the first annual Hyper Awards given by NewMedia editors for technical excellence.

Netscape Communication's Navigator 2.0 and Sun Microsystems' Java won the first annual Hyper Awards given by NewMedia editors for technical excellence.

Netscape Navigator 2.0 won for "best software of the year." NewMedia's editors attributed their selection to Netscape's strategy of giving away its Web browser and defining Web standards for the technology market.

NewMedia named Sun's Java "best new technology" because it has "galvanized" and extended the kinds of applications possible for the Web-programming community.
