JavaScript was being developed under the name Mocha on May 1995, but while releasing the first beta version Netscape (the company who created it) named it as LiveScript.

JavaScript doesn’t have a proper array type

JavaScript can fail silently at runtime due to a syntactical error

JavaScript has “lexical scoping” with “function scope”

JavaScript was created in 10 days only and when released, it used to cover a very small portion of a proper programming language.

In 2005, Jesse James Garrett released a white paper in which he coined the term Ajax, and described a set of technologies, of which JavaScript was the backbone, used to create web applications where data can be loaded in the background, avoiding the need for full page reloads and resulting in more dynamic applications.

JavaScript cannot read files from or write them to the file system on the computer.

Javascript is loosely typed, except in switch statements. JavaScript is NOT loosely typed when it comes to case comparisons.

Easy to learn as it runs on browser - just open your console and start coding

Has over 50 frameworks - perhaps more than any other language
