    Hi,

    Jscript is Microsoft's version of javascript -- while similar, it is not exactly the same and it doesn't run in all browsers. There are also vbScript, another M$ language (based on Visual Basic) and perlScript (which I've only heard mention of)

    Of the 3, javascript is the most widely used -- all browsers recognize the language; though some commands will only be recognized by the newer versions. Javascript is based on ECMAscript, which is the 'standards' version (unimplemented)

    As far as I know vBscript has some more powerful native functions and objects. At the very least more diverse. However, Javascript can create user defined objects which allows for the creation of more power. Personally I use Javascript.
