Here are a couple reasons why JavaScript was able to be as successful as it has been:

  • The W3C DOM Level 2 specification helped improve browser compatibility.
  • The proliferation of broadband internet allowed for larger webpages.
  • The XMLHttpRequest object (often referred to as XHR) allowed for the asynchronous download of webpages and therefore contributing to web developer's ability to make webpages and web applications larger.
