JavaScript is an interpreted language initially implemented in the Netscape world wide web browser. JavaScript is not Java plus or minus. It is a separate language that has a superficial resemblance to Java, partly because of a common application area (HTML / web) and common ancestry (C with object oriented features).

JavaScript programs are run on the client computer usually by a web browser which must have JavaScript enabled (for Netscape4+ [edit] -> preferences -> advanced -> enable JavaScript, for Netscape3+ check `Options' then `Network Preferences' then `Languages'.)

NB. Microsoft Explorer has its own scripting language JScript. Unfortunately Microsoft Explorer takes JavaScript as JScript and tries to execute it. Since JScript does not (as of mid 1997) implement all the JavaScript features this can lead to various errors. Microsoft should either implement all of JavaScript or not treat JavaScript as JScript.
