General Development "Everyone seems to have a replacement for JavaScript - Google even has two. Now Microsoft has revealed that Anders Hejlsberg has been working on a replacement and it has released a preview of TypeScript. TypeScript is open source - Apache 2.0 license - and a superset of JavaScript. As you would expect from a Hejlsberg language it incorporates type checking, interfaces and lots of syntactic sugar."

TBH, if you keep JS, CSS and HTML actually separated and adhere to that you can write some pretty good maintainable webpages. Unfortunately most web developers think well made means "It works okay in my version of Firefox/Chrome".
