Submission + - Trying to Bust Javascript Out of the Browser (

eldavojohn writes: If you think Javascript is a crime against humanity, you might want to skip skip this article. Because Ars is reporting on efforts to take Javascript to the next level. With the new ECMAScript 5 draft proposal, the article points out a lot of positive things that have happened in the world of Javascript. The article does a good job of citing some of the major problems with Javascript and how a reborn library called CommonJS (formerly ServerJS) is addressing each of those problems. No one can deny Javascript's usefulness on the front end of the web but if you're a developer do you support the efforts to move it beyond that?
