Out of 35 browserpresentations by students the jurors of the 3rd
International Browserday chose the following winners:

art, critical comments, philosophies and ready-to-use applications,
improvements or additions to existing techniques and possibilities.

Plans exist for a Browserday in New York in fall 2000.
