JavaScript is becoming fairly standard for some things. In fact my
current mail client (which I use when on someone's else Windows box),
Gmail, is more usable than mutt - if you've got more than a couple
hundred million bytes of main memory to spare. Err, make that more
than triple hundred million bytes.

Wasteful? Yes. Still got almost half of my main memory free, though.
Computer manufacturers gotta make money somehow. ;)
