JScript is a scripting language based on the ECMAScript standard that is used in Microsoft's Internet Explorer.

JavaScript is a prototype-based scripting language that is dynamic, weakly typed and has first-class functions. It is a multi-paradigm language, supporting object-oriented, imperative, and functional programming styles.

JScript & JavaScript are both scripting languages that make easy development of web pages. JScript is similar to JavaScript with subtle difference in objects & functions exposed. JScript is supported & shipped by Microsoft & may be work best only on IE where as JavaScript was initiated by Netscape & can work across all browsers consistently.

The biggest difference now between JavaScript and JScript are all of the additional commands that JScript supports that allow access to ActiveX and the local computer. These commands are intended for use on intranet sites where you know the configuration of all of the computers and that they are all running Internet Explorer.

JScript is the Microsoft implementation of JavaScript.

There is no difference. JScript and JavaScript are the exact same programming language. (Microsoft used the JScript name in the past to avoid trademark issues)
