What is JavaScript?

It is a scripting language that works with HTML to enhance web pages and make them more interactive. A script is made up of a sequence of statements that give instructions for the computer to perform certain tasks, for examples, like providing a response to the users, to play a song, to start a slide show, to display certain advertisements and so on. JavaScript can turn a web page into a lively interactive platform for the world wide web users!

Why use JavaScript?

Why use JavaScript? You may have this question in mind. Well, let me get to the point. HTML or HyperText Markup Language was the only language that was used to present text and graphics as well as links to the world wide web users in the 90’s of the last century. Although it was a vast improvement from the earlier text-only browsers like Gopher, it was relatively passive and static, it cannot interact much with the user. That is why we need JavaScript to make browsing the web a more interesting and useful experience for the Internet user
