10 things we hate about JavaScript

We love JavaScript. Static Web pages were cute back in 1992, but now our Web pages sing, dance, and otherwise entice users with seductive code written in JavaScript. We write JavaScript every day, on almost every platform, for almost every purpose. But that doesn't mean we love everything about it.

Here's a list of 10 things we've come to hate about the hippest new old language on the Web. Maybe not hate with the same degree of animosity we feel toward, say, the scumbag who rootkitted my server to send out a billion spam messages. Maybe it's mere disdain. You can read the list, examine your own feelings, and decide for yourself.
