Comment Re:JavaScript Sucks, Rant [Re:Node.js] (Score 1) 536

>Most developers only use JavaScript because it's their only realistic option on the client side for web-based applications

Every day that passes that becomes less true, though. Apparently, C compiled to asm.js (or one of the alternatives -- I forget) is already faster than handcoded JS. Just a matter of time before a nicer ecosystem becomes available.

I, for one, am happy about that. While I don't dislike JS as much as you, having choices is good.
