Wording of article

I'm not a big fan of the rewording of this article: I think it is now harder for non-technical users to understand what JavaScript does. We should compromise somewhere between the under-technical and the over-technical. --Mozcerize 04:01, 29 Mar 2005 (PST)

I think that in this case less technical would also mean less accurate. If you want to make it perceptible for commoners, add a dumbed down rephrase. Note that I plan on expanding this article. —Fatalis
I would like to notice that we don't need an encyclopedic article here. Wikipedia's article is a great source for this kind information. This page should instead focus on what JavaScript means to end-users, for developers we can add a link to Development_resources#JavaScript.
For users simpler, not technically accurate description is better -- users don't care about ECMAScript or it being prototype-based, most probably don't even understand what it means. --asqueella

Including JavaScript is not Java article

We should *not* merge these two articles. See here for reasons why. --Mozcerize 04:01, 29 Mar 2005 (PST)

Including Scripting of Java Applets

I don't think this is the appropriate place for this info. I suggest moving it to the development JavaScript article. Mozcerize 01:20, 13 September 2005 (PDT)

Advanced JavaScript settings

Change images: After (This option has been removed from the Advanced JavaScript Settings window in Firefox 1.5., I replaced the very detailed instructions for resetting the preference in Firefox 1.5 with a scaled-back version, since the about:config article provides additional detail.
