JavaScript Introduction

The first name of the javascript was livescript and it was developed by Netscape  in 1990. It was later renamed to JavaScript in 1995, and became an ECMA standard in 1997. The javaScript is the standard client-side scripting language for web-based applications and support currently runing web browser such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, etc.

The javaScript is an object-oriented language, and it also has some similarities in syntax to Java programming language. But, JavaScript is not related to Java in any way. The ECMAScript 6 (or ES6) is the latest major version of the ECMAScript standard.
