    Sorry, I wasn't clear: I was answering the assertion "JS got a lot more attention because you simply can't use any other language to script sites.", which is clearly incorrect.

    A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James

      You may write scripts in those language, but they won't work for lack of support. As such, you can't use them in web sites. Sure, you could in closed systems, but that's not really the web.

        Indeed that is the problem. If we were better at marketing, all browsers would run Perlscript instead of javascript.
