In 1990’s There is a Popular Browser called NCSA Mosaic, or simply Mosaic, is the web browser that popularized the World Wide Web.

Netscape Navigator was later developed by Netscape (originally known as Mosaic Communications Corporation), The same employees who worked for the Mosaic went to work on Netscape but they don’t share any code.

Netscape Recognized that the Sites need more user Interaction instead Of the static web pages.So that Netscape hired Brendan Eich to make it possible In 1995 and He made a Prototype within 10 days And They named it as A mocha Later they renamed it as LiveScript In 1995 December they changed it as a JavaScript Because Java is Already Popular at that time.

The final choice of name caused confusion, giving the impression that the language was a spin-off of the Java programming language, and the choice has been characterized as a marketing ploy by Netscape to give JavaScript as the hot new Web programming language.
