VBScript or JavaScript

Recommended Posts

Guest Gloria

Hi, I'm a newbie to web development so I'm hoping someone will help me with this question. Well, I have run into some examples of HTLM codes with VBScript as well as JavaScript. To prevent myself from getting more confused, I think I will need to learn either one and only one of them. The problem is, which? Any suggestion? Thanks.

I would definently go for JavaScript, main reason being that it works on all major browsers like IE, Firefox, Opera - VBScript only works on IE because it's from microsoft.

Definently JavaScript.Were you looking at the ASP tutorial, is that why you were asking about which to use? Because ASP can be written using either VBScript or JavaScript.For "everyday" coding, I'd go with JavaScript. It is better with cross-platform and cross-browser compatability.

Only use vbscript if you are trying to achieve a certain result in IE apart from the others.

Yeah... but I think VBScript is more dead like Hitler... Its gone... we're trying to forget it ever happened, and most importantly... its not coming back....while OTHER evils (inferior languages) will rise up (*cough* PHP *cough*) VBScript is dead.
