- Prototype-based Inheritance
- JSON (a subset of the object literal notation of JS)
- Asynchronous event-driven programming
- Functions as objects
It has become the dominant language of the web as all the modern web browsers implement this language. It is the only one language that can be deployed on all personal computers and mobile devices globally. It is the most powerful, versatile, and fully-functional object-oriented programming language similar to the more traditional languages like C++. Ruby, or Java.
Did you know?
It implies that the code is executed on the user’s processor instead of the webserver. This, in turn, saves the bandwidth and reduces the extra load from the server.
Easy to learn & implement:
The syntax of the language is identical to simple English, which makes it easier for developers to learn. As developers being able to use the same language in the front end and back end, it makes the programming task easier.
Extended Functionality to Web Pages:
It’s completely free:
Easy to debug:
Powerful and Free Frameworks Libraries:
Developing software is quite a challenging task. Fortunately, there are free frameworks and libraries available in JS that allow developers to code error-free and quickly. Some popular frameworks are AngularJS, Backbone.js, Bootstrap. While the libraries are jQuery, Prototype, and Dojo.
