A report from pgCon 2013
I generally agree that JS gets a bad rap, but there are problems with it that go beyond problems with any particular implementation - some part of the language itself are distressingly bad.
The exact behaviour of its semicolon insertion, in particular, is unforgivable.

I don't know. I never had to think about it while writing code. For me this means that it's rather decent.
Much, much, MUCH worse is how all numbers are half-float, half-integer (with limited precision, IIRC). That's just... unspeakable.
But, other than that, I rather like this little bugger.
