Web browser scripting

Websites use scripting to enhance the browsing experience. JavaScript and VBScript are the most popular scripting languages on the Web.

Web browser scripting, also known as ‘client-side scripting’, refers to the code required to process or compile user-input directly by the browser, or browser plug-in, or to alter the display attributes of a page after it has been downloaded. This code is often embedded within a HTML or XHTML document.

Uses of web browser / client-side scripting languages include the addition of ‘pop-up windows’ to a website, and causing an image to change to another when the cursor is rolled over it. They can also be used to make calculations based on data that is input by the user.
