Here are some examples:
  • JavaScript includes variables which hold the data value and it can be changed anytime. This is one thing it can be
  • JavaScript is specifically an OOP scripting language
  • Full integration with HTML/CSS. - Support by all major browsers and enabled by default


ES6

ES6 or ECMAScript is a major update to JavaScript that includes dozens of new features. Such as:
  • Default Parameters
  • Template Literals
  • Multi-line Strings
  • Destructuring Assignment
  • Enhanced Object Literals
  • Arrow Functions
  • Promises
  • Block-Scoped Constructs Let and ConstClasses
  • Modules

Cons

Like everything in life, not everything is perfect and javascript is not an exception. Here are some examples:
  • You don´t have client-side security
  • Browser support
  • Lack of debugging facility
  • Single inheritance
  • Sluggish Bitwise Function
  • Rendering Stopped
