In its early years, being considered as the choicest language of amateurs, it was denigrated by professional web development specialists. In the year 2004 a major breakthrough was achieved by this highly underrated programming language when a web application, popular as Gmail, was launched that first revealed to the world the potential of this client-side language. While its competitors like Hotmail and Yahoo! Mail that used server-side rendering featured very slow interfaces, Gmail could immediately respond to user interactions.
