Introduction to JavaScript: Overview

            JavaScript is considered a dynamic programming language. It was first released with Netscape Navigator in 1995. Originally called LiveScript, the name was changed when Netscape Navigator added support for the machine language Java.

            It quickly gained success and Microsoft introduced JavaScript in the release of Internet Explorer Version 3.0 in 1996. Since its introduction in 1995, JavaScript has become one of the most popular programming languages for the web.

            Writing functions that are embedded in HTML pages is the most common use of JavaScript today.  But, it can also be used to animate page elements, validate data and perform many other functions that enhance the users’ experience. JavaScript runs locally on the users’ browser, making it possible for quick reaction times. This also allows for a much more responsive experience on the web.

            JavaScript is currently the only programming language that is supported by most of the popular browsers used worldwide. Because of this, it is the target language for many different frameworks in other languages. This allows for greater expansion and more widespread use as a programming language. JavaScript is currently a trademark of the Oracle Corporation and is licensed for use by current entities such as the Mozilla Foundation, creators of the popular browser Firefox.
