In mid 90’s the predominant programming language was Java, a language that was fairly difficult to learn and somewhat too sophisticated for simple applications. And this is where Netscape comes into play.
Founded in 1994, Netscape aimed to create a proprietary web browser, which they did. In the 90s Netscape was today’s Google, if we’re to make a comparison. While its popularity faded by the late 90s, Netscape remains one of the companies that innovated the programming industry up to this day.
The story goes that in 1995, the founder of Netscape, Marc Andreessen wanted to create a simple and easy to use programming language to run right into the Netscape browser. Java was the dominant language of those times, but for what he needed it was a bit too complex and difficult to learn. It was then when Brendan Eich, a new developer at Netscape, designed a simplified programming language in just 10 days. Yes, 10 days.
