Netscape and ActiveState To Cooperate on Development

Wednesday May 24th, 2000

Bill Stilwell writes, "Found this over at daily - Netscape and ActiveState have announced a deal where they will cooperate on their development projects. ActiveState gets Javascript, while ActiveState will donate its Python and Perl work to the Mozilla project.

"JavaScript will join Perl and Python as supported languages in ActiveState's powerful Komodo integrated development environment. This will allow Web developers to edit, run and debug their JavaScript programs in a professional-class development tool fully oriented to the Web, while maintaining a close integration with the browser. In turn, Perl and Python will join JavaScript as programming languages in Mozilla, thereby making it easier for Open Source programmers to use the Mozilla framework, and giving Mozilla developers access to additional scripting technologies."

Either you haven't spent a lot of time in Javascript, or you're prejudiced. JavaScript is extremely powerful. It surprises me constantly when I see something new and very creative that I never dreamed of. With Mozilla, it's better than ever. It's just that Mozilla is the biggest, most public project to make extensive use of Javascript, to show a huge number of people just how powerful it is.
