>Javascript is in fact a nice language if it were not for the dom api discrepancies and bugs in browsers

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.
