Programming language developed for browsers, which is therefore mostly used for websites. JavaScript is executed in the website visitor’s browser. Meanwhile, JavaScript is very flexible and can be used for many purposes. For example, it is used to build various websites and also to adapt them to their visitors. In addition, validation queries can also be coded, which are linked to databases and check the user’s entries.

Do not confuse: JavaScript and Java are completely different technologies.
