Welcome to JavaScript

JavaScript is the most popular and widely used client-side scripting language. Client-side scripting refers to scripts that run within your web browser. JavaScript is designed to add interactivity and dynamic effects to the web pages by manipulating the content returned from a web server.

JavaScript was originally developed by Brendan Eich of Netscape under the name Mocha, later LiveScript, and finally renamed to JavaScript. JavaScript was first introduced and deployed in the Netscape browser version 2.0B3 in December 1995. JavaScript is a trademark of Sun Microsystems.

Despite the name, JavaScript is basically unrelated to the Java, though JavaScript copies many Java names and naming conventions. JavaScript is an object-oriented language, and it also has some similarities in syntax to Java programming language.
