JavaScript is a server-side scripting language. It can be used to:

  • access the elements of a web page
  • access the elements of the browser window in which it is running (such as the window's history)
  • perform actions on those elements
  • create new page elements

JavaScript runs locally inside the user's browser. Because of this, the web page can respond quickly to JavaScript's instructions. JavaScript can also detect and make use of user actions, such as mouse clicks or keyboard actions, that HTML alone can't.

Almost every web browser in common use provide support for JavaScript.
