What is ECMAScript ?

ECMA is a short form for European Computer Manufacturer’s Association. ECMAScript (ES) defines a standard and contains specifications for scripting languages such as JavaScript (Netscape /Mozilla browser implementation of the ECMA specification)and JScript (Microsoft’s Internet Explorer) developed by Brendan Eich in 1995. Therefore, one can also say that ES is a superset of JS and JScript.

That means it is used for client side scripting such as JavaScript and  for writing server side applications and services using Node.js.

Several editions with new feature support per edition have been published for ECMAScript. It should be noted that with each version release, there were support compatibility issues with some browser’s versions.
