Scripting languages are compiled when an interpreter reads it. Almost all internet browsers have built in JavaScript interpreters. When your web browser reads a webpage with a JavaScript in it, the interpreter in the web browser translates the JavaScript into something the computer understands. Scripting languages operate more slowly than compiled languages, because of the time required for this translation (every time a JavaScript program runs, it must be translated for the computer). Scripting languages work well for web developers. Scripts are usually smaller and less complex than desktop programs, so their slower speed isn't really noticeable. Creating and testing programs that use scripting languages is a much faster process since they don't require compiling.
