A Quick JavaScript History Lesson

Back in the good old days, (about 1995), when MSIE was just a twinkle in Steve Job's eye (or Bill Gates'), Netscape Communications came out with JavaScript the first (I think) client-side browser scripting language. It allowed web developers to run code from the webpage in the viewer's browser without the user needing to communicate with the server. Soon there were many uses and abuse of this technology. Scrolling text, text-box clocks, flashing/changing page background colors- some of it all useful and some not-so-useful. Since those first days of JavaScript, there have been many revisions and additions, and also some copycats. Microsoft soon came out with their JScript, which basically does all the same things for their browser that JavaScript did for Netscape.
