A Comparison of VbScript and JavaScript: Insight on Selection and Future Enhancements

Scripting languages such as JavaScript and VBScript are most widely used for developing web pages that are interactive in nature. JavaScript is a programming language that was developed by Netscape communications corporations. VBScript is a subset of the Visual Basic programming language by Microsoft that is supported by Microsoft Internet Explorer. These scripts require a Web browser or an interpreter in order to run. In this paper, a brief comparison is made between the features of VBScript and JavaScript scripting languages. This paper will provide acumen into different features of these languages and assist in making a prudent decision and also facilitate the researchers in the development of new and better scripting languages or extending the features of existing scripting languages.
