The Story Behind
During the initial years of the Web, the web pages were static and lacked the ability for dynamic behavior when the page was loaded in the browser.
There was a desire in the expanding web development domain to remove this limitation. Keeping this in view, in 1995, Netscape intended to add a scripting language to the Navigator.
They proceeded to two routes for achieving this first was, collaborating with Sun Microsystems to embed the Java programming language, and secondly, they hired Brendan Eich to embed the Scheme language.
The manager of Netscape very soon decided that the best option for Brendan Eich is to devise a new language, with a syntax that is similar to Java and less like Scheme or other extant scripting languages.
