The history of Javascript

A collegue of mine queried me to day as to the history of Javascript. A quick search on google and it was revealed that it was introduced by Brendan Eich in 1995 as Livescript as part of Netscape Navigator. There are quite a number of Javascript implementation as each of the browsers created their own implementation. Created for non-Java programmers to easily integrate applets in browsers, it spawned into the very simple but powerful language that almost every developer will be using today.
