Actually, there's nothing wrong with the JavaScript language that makes it unsuitable for writing a large app. The DOM API isn't suitable by itself, but Mozilla's XPCOM/XPConnect APIs give chrome JavaScript (though not page JavaScript) access to important internals.

As much as I like Python, using it instead of JS wouldn't really gain you a lot.
