What is JavaScript?

     Javascript is a light weight scripting language which can be used to develop dynamic and interactive webpages. Its easy to learn.
     Example: animations, simple interactive games, validations which can be done in client side (or browser) etc., can be done using javascript.

     It was developed by Brendan Eich at Netscape sometime in 1995–1996. Previously, it was called as ‘livescript’.

     The name 'Javascript' is misleading because javascript and java are not the same thing.
