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."

<p>Does anybody know how this looks as far as security? And please no "Its from M$ so its worthless" as I really want to know. the biggest complaint I've had about JavaScript is that frankly its a security nightmare, you block JavaScript and malware drops right off the map.</p>

So I honestly don't care if it comes from MSFT, Google, or Toys R Us, if it helps to get rid of the security nightmare that is modern JavaScript I'm ALL for it.
