History of javascript

JavaScript was invented by Brendan Eich in 1995. It was developed for Netscape 2 and became the ECMA-262 standard in 1997. After Netscape handed JavaScript over to ECMA, the Mozilla foundation continued to develop JavaScript for the Firefox browser. Mozilla's latest version was 1.8.5. (Identical to ES5). Internet Explorer (IE4) was the first browser to support ECMA-262 Edition 1 (ES1).


This tag should be used for any JavaScript-related content. It doesn't matter if it's client-side or server-side. Remember to include the framework's tag as well if the discussion is about a JavaScript framework or library.
