What is Javascript?

Javascript is a scripting language developed by Netscape used to provide dynamic and interactive content on webpages. It is one of the first scripting languages in existence and today is the most popular scripting language on the web. Javascript works in all modern web browsers including Firefox, Netscape, Opera, and Internet Explorer.
