Introduction to Web design software
When the browser Netscape Navigator started growing in early web, Nombas developed a version of the script for Netscape that could be embedded into web pages; thus creating the first client-side scripting language.
During the early rapid development of the web but with still very slow connection (28.8 kbps) the web sites became quite slow for impatient visitors. That was especially obvious with the online forms. When a visitor clicked on "Submit" button, he or she had to wait for the server response, only to be told, i.e., that a field is missing and the form has to be filled out again. Therefore the first meaningful usage of a client-side scripting was for forms validations.
Netscape and Microsoft
In the following year the script was accepted by the International Organization for Standardization and International Electrotechnical Commission (ISO/IEC) and became a standard ISO/IEC-16262.
