What is JavaScript?

JavaScript is a cross-platform, object-based scripting language. It supports a runtime system based on a small number of data types representing numeric, Boolean, and string values. It has a prototype-based object model which provides dynamic inheritance. It also supports functions without any special declarative requirements. It is a very free-form language because variables, parameters and function return types are not explicitly typed.
