JavaScript and Jscript are different languages with few similarities. JavaScript is a scripting language developed by Netscape communication, which is commonly used in a web browser while JScript was named by Microsoft, it is also a scripting language. JavaScript first appeared on 4 December 1995.

The main difference between these two is the additional commands that Jscript gives ActiveX. JScript supports online content for WWW, while JavaScript does not support active content creation. JavaScript runs its code in a web browser while Jscript runs in the Microsoft browser.
