JavaScript is a scripting language that was created by Netscape. It can be embedded into the HTML of a web page to add functionality, and it doesn’t need to be compiled. It can be used to respond to user actions, run processes locally, or validate data. JavaScript is great for making your website more interactive—and if that’s what you’re looking for, we have plenty of articles to help you get the job done.
