If you are one of those folks that dislike JavaScript and do the impossible to avoid it, you probably are living in oblivious and denial. If you are one of those that think the language is just client-side, I have some news for you:

Good reasons for start learning JavaScript are:

1. JAXER

This is the first AJAX Server. HTML, JavaScript, CSS, XMLHTTPRequests, JSON, DOM, scripting, etc are native to JAXER. It has access to databases, files, networking, logging, process management, scalability, security, integration API, PHP, Rubi, etc.

2. GOOGLE CHROME BROWSER

Built on JavaScript and other technologies, this is the long awaiting Google’s Browser to rival IE and Firefox’s dominance. How¬†does running native code sound to you?

3. ADOBE AIR

Adobe’s Integrated Runtime applications can be developed with AJAX and HTML.
