JavaScript® הינה שפת תכנות קלת משקל, מוכוונת עצמים אשר ידועה לרוב כשפת תסריט עבור דפי אינטרנט, אך נמצאת בשימוש רב גם מחוץ לסביבת הדפדפן. (אודות JavaScript).

The JavaScript standard is ECMAScript. As of 2012, all modern browsers fully support ECMAScript 5.1. Older browsers support at least ECMAScript 3. A 6th major revision of the standard is in the works and is expected to be finished around mid 2015.

This section of the site is dedicated to the JavaScript language itself, the parts that are not specific to Web pages, or other host environments. For information about APIs specific to Web pages, please see Web APIs and DOM.

JavaScript is not to be confused with the Java programming language. Java is a trademark or registered trademark of Oracle in the U.S. and other countries.
