Benefits of Javascript for your Project

Known as one of the most simple, versatile and effective languages; Javascript is used to extend and enhance the functionality of your websites. It uses a range of on-screen visual effects for processing and calculating data on web pages with ease. It also has the ability to use third-party scripts to add many handy features to make your website look and function uniquely. Above all, Javascript is a dynamic language and is the foundation of nearly all the interactive frontend programming.

Let’s take a look at some of the advantages of Javascript for your project:

  • Executed on the client side

The Javascript code is executed on the user’s processor, rather than the web server. This is particularly advantageous because it saves a lot of bandwidth and reduces strain on the web server.

  • Relatively easy language

Javascript is relatively easy to learn. The syntax is close to English and has a very small learning curve. It uses the DOM model that provides plenty of ready to use functionality that can be implemented on various objects on the pages to solve a custom purpose.

  • It’s fast

As the code is executed on the user’s computer, the results are delivered and the processing is completed almost instantly. As mentioned earlier, the code does not have to be processed on the web server and then sent back to the user – hence consuming less local as well as server bandwidth.

  • Extends functionality

Javascript has a number of third-party add-ons that enable developers to write snippets of Javascript which can execute on the desired web pages to extend its functionality. If your website requires a customized feature or functionality, it can easily be included by either a ready add on, or by writing a customized code.

  • Mobile Ready

JavaScript has numerous extensions available for responsive mobile app development too.

Along with HTML and CSS, Javascript is arguably the most ubiquitous client-side languages. HTML dictates the content of the page, CSS dictates the look and feel of the page and Javascript dictates the behavior or functionality of the page!
