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."

Yeah, but it's like bassbeast describes under every browser... so maybe there's something wrong with the specification and/or what it tries to do & how it must be implemented because of that.

Especially noticeable on older or netbook-class machines - when going from Flash to HTML5 video, the performance very clearly degrades (contrary to claims of how it was supposed to be...), often to the point of making video playback unusable at the same quality levels.
