Turnmeyer – CIS440 – JavaScript and Web Usability The usability of JavaScript has been enhanced over the past 5 years drastically. We have to first realize what is JavaScript? JavaScript is a general-purpose programming language designed to let programmers of all skill levels control the behavior of software objects. The language is used most widely today in Web browsers whose software objects tend to represent a variety of HTML elements in a document and the document itself. But the language can be--and is--used with other kinds of objects in other environments. “For example, Adobe Acrobat Forms uses JavaScript as its underlying scripting language to glue together objects that are unique to the forms generated by Adobe Acrobat.” (Danny Goodman, 98) Therefore, it is important to distinguish JavaScript, the language, from the objects it can communicate with in any particular environment.
