Javascript Functionality

Javascript is a coding language which allows you to add bells and whistles to a website to do something special. There are limits to what javascript can do, but within those limitations is a huge list of possibilities to add extra functions to your website and make it look more interesting (ie. the moving background on this page).

Javascript can do a wide range of functions including math calculations, forms, image effects, background effects and navigational tools. You can even create games and complex functions using Javascript

Of course not every website needs this level of functionality. It is just a fancier way to show images, use links and create navigation that works. Such bells and whistles are just a side dish to website design, something to make the website more interesting.

Note - While Javascript functions are certainly fun to add to websites, many websites now avoid using them due to issues concerning browser compatibility, the increased use of phones/tablets (particularly Apple products) which don't allow Javascript, and as such while Javascript is useful and interesting, it is increasingly becoming obsolete due to more websites being designed to be mobile friendly. Thus these days we usually recommend clients to avoid using Javascript, unless they insist upon having some sort of Javascript function on their website, in which case they run the risk of not every visitor being able to see or use the function.
