    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.

    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)

    JavaScript is a scripting language developed by Netscape Communications designed for developing client and server Internet applications. Netscape Navigator is designed to interpret JavaScript embedded into Web pages. JavaScript is independent of Sun Microsystem's Java language.

    Microsoft JScript is an open implementation of Netscape's JavaScript. JScript is a high-performance scripting language designed to create active online content for the World Wide Web. JScript allows developers to link and automate a wide variety of objects in Web pages, including ActiveX controls and Java programs. Microsoft Internet Explorer is designed to interpret JScript embedded into Web pages.
