JavaScript is a scripting language developed in 1995 by Netscape and added to the Netscape Navigator browser in the same year. JavaScript gave web browsers the power to do more than just load web documents. The majority of web sites in the world now use JavaScript and other aspects of the internet such as advertising and analytics and widgets almost depend on its existence. Frameworks and tools have been built to make using JavaScript easier or to provide specific functionality for other website functions.

JQuery is the most detected JavaScript library in use on the web. JQuery provides features and functions of JavaScript that not only make JavaScript browser agnostic but also ease the development process.
