I would say that JavaScript has made a dent in the market. Yeah, it started as a language that people used because it's the only language runtime supported by web browsers. Yeah, it has an peculiar object model. Yeah, the syntax can be annoying });

But the runtime engines are really fast, and it's not so bad as a meta-language upon which better languages can be built using frameworks and pre-compilers.

Yeah, JavaScript is inferior to Lua in every possible way, but it's caught on, and it's here to stay.
