Introduction to Javascript

JavaScript is an interpreted computer programming language formalized in the ECMAScript language standard. JavaScript engines interpret and execute JavaScript. JavaScript engines may be designed for use as standalone interpretors, embedding in applications, or both. The first JavaScript engine was created by Netscape for embedding in their Web browser. V8 is a JavaScript engine created for use in Google Chrome and may also be used as a standalone interpretor. Adobe Flash uses a JavaScript engine called ActionScript for development of Flash programs.
