The origins of Javascript (brief)

The origins of Javascript (brief)

JavaScript was originally named LiveScript. It was developed by Netscape. In 1995, LiveScript became a joint venture of Netscape and Sun Microsystems and then its name was changed to Java Script. A language standard for JavaScript was developed by the European Computer Manufacturers Association (ECMA) as ECMA-262 in late 1990s. International Standards Organization (ISO) has also approved this standard. Microsoft's JavaScript is named JScript. The popular browser which is Netscape 7 (NS7) and also Internet Explorer 6 (IE6) at that time both implement languages that conform to ECMA-262. JavaScript official name is called ECMAScript.
