 Netscape added the software it was originally named Mocha yet this name had been a cause of misconception as developers thought Mocha was a spin-off of Java. The project was officially renamed from Mocha to LiveScript and was released with Netscape Navigator version 2.0 in September 1995. By Netscape Version 2.0 B3LiveScript was renamed to JavaScript, which did cause some confusion between developers. There was also another misconception that JavaScript was influenced by the C- CC minus minus) programming language because Cm- involved page scripting language. The creators of C- , Nombas, had later switch to JavaScript. Netscape introduced the implementation for server side scripting with Netscape Enterprise Server which was released in December l994. The nods file is a notable example of server side JavaScript being used in everyday applications. As JavaScript spread Microsoft eventually added support for Internet Explorer since version 3.0 in August 1996. Microsoft'​s web server named Internet Information Server included support for server side scripting with JavaScript. Later on Microsoft'​s implementation had been renamed to Jscript to avoid legality issued. Jscript added date methods to fix the dreaded Y2K problems. In 1996 Netscape had submitted JavaScript to Ecma International for consideration as a computing industry standard and subsequent work named ECMAScript. As a result JavaScript is one of the most popular programming languages alive on the web. Although many professional programmers can take advantage of the language, it is fairly easy to learn that even an amateur can pick up the language. The Ajax language was also created as a result of JavaScript'​s creation and it is even interesting that JavaScript is going beyond the web page. The JavaScript language has no built in I/0 functionality because the runtime environment already provides that. The language'​s use in webpages is mainly to send a piece of information,​ and allow a server to process the information and give an answer based on what information was submitted. JavaScript was implemented into HTML pages which interact with the DOM (Document Object Model); examples of this use include"​ Loading newer page content or uploading data to the server via AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) without reloading a web page, animation of webpage elements, interactive content such as games along with audio and video, validating input values on web forms to validate if the from is read to be sent to the server, and transmitting information of the end user's reading and browsing habits this is commonly used for ad tracking and web analytics. Because JavaScript also has the ability to run locally instead of on a server, the end user has very fast response times. JavaScript also can detect a user's actions that HTML cannot, such as a user's Keystrokes, however this was a major security concern. A JavaScript engine was also created to interpret JavaScript source code and to execute r's script accordingly;​ this software also goes by the names of JavaScript Interpreter or JavaScript Implementation. The first engine was implemented in the C programming language, and was code named SpiderMonkey. Web browsers are the most common environments for JavaScript because browsers typically create host objects to represent the DOM. JavaScript is also showing up more and more on native desktop applications and widgets. Web servers are also other comment host environments for the language as they typically host objects representing HTTP or HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure) requests and response objects, JavaScript is perfect for manipulating the content of the pages to dynamically tolerate pages as responses to the original requests. Because JavaScript is the only language that browsers commonly share support for, it is a target language for several frameworks in mar y other languages even though JavaScript had absolutely no intentions to become such a computing language. Even though the JavaScript engine was very limited, improvements had been made increasing the speed of the language'​s responsiveness. Even though that JavaScript'​s intentions are to write the program once so it may be run across many different platforms, there are issues that happen whenever a single program is written for several platforms. To prevent errors from occurring on different platforms, developers have to go through a process called debugging. Debugging allows a developer to test their code on multiple platforms and to locate errors within their code. This gives developers an opportunity to modify their code for affected platforms, if any exist, to remove the troublesome code. JavaScript is now a trademark of Oracle Corporation under license. It is still the most popular of the known languages derived from the original Java code from Sun Microsystems.\\ Netscape added the software it was originally named Mocha yet this name had been a cause of misconception as developers thought Mocha was a spin-off of Java.

 Today, Java is powering almost every computerized device. Java's statistics according to Oracle'​s website state that Java: " has 9 billion developers, 1billion downloads per year, 3 billion devices run Java, 97 percent of enterprise desktops run Java, and all Blu-Ray players are shipped with Java by default."​ Java even powered the Sprit rover, which had studied mars for approximately six years before losing communication with the device in March of 2010. Java is one of the most powerful programming languages on the planet, and even beyond the planet. It influenced a world of Java based languages and is still to this day helping progress technology forward. Today, Java is powering almost every computerized device.
