JavaScript Paradise

The past month I have been working on a project using Flash. The project is almost done and in between finishing the project I've had to work on a heavy JavaScript project. After working in Flash for a while and then going back to JavaScript you start to realize how much better ActionScript is over JavaScript.

There are quite a few things that ActionScript has over JavaScript the below list has just a few.

  • Strong Variable Typing
  • Ability to Control the Graphical Display Easily in Script (with no cross browser issues)
  • No Cross Browser Issues (other than no plug-in)
  • A Good IDE With a Nice Debugger
  • Better Cross-Domain XML Support

My recent playing in ActionScript made me hope that we will see some of it's features incorporated in JavaScript. While much of this is in the works who knows when the 10K LB beast known as IE will allow for these features to be available cross browser.

Playing in ActionScript has made think of what life would be like in JavaScript Paradise.
