Comparing JavaScript and Angular JS can be considered as a comparison between Google and search engines. Although it might not make complete sense to make such a kind of comparison, it cannot be denied that Angular JS stands out from the rest of the other JavaScript frameworks.

Let us look at the key differences between JavaScript and Angular JS.

A brief history of JavaScript

JavaScript is an object oriented programming language and it is more eligible to be called a scripting language. It is a multi-paradigm, prototype based, imperative, functional and completely event driven language. Comedy, JavaScript is abbreviated as JS. The JavaScript filename generally bears the extension .js.

The origin of JavaScript can be traced back to the year 1995 and it was jointly developed by Netscape Communications, Mozilla Foundation and Ecma international. JavaScript is used along with Java as a client side scripting language. It can be run on a browser without code re compiling. That makes applications insanely dynamic and interactive.

JavaScript also sports amazing features like using dynamic testing period it is one of the safest programming languages which does not compromise on security for the sake of performance. It can be Man U plated in a browser for doing changes on web applications. In addition to all of this, it does not miss out on accommodating the addition of new HTML pages for content and style changes. It also flawlessly integrates with the classical elements of web design like HTML and CSS.

The existence of JavaScript for a considerable period of time ensures that it is supported by all major browsers.

A brief history of Angular JS

Angular JS is an open source JavaScript framework which helps in rendering dynamic content on web browsers. It was developed by Google and it made its debut in the year 2010. Ever since its introduction, it has evolved and grown to become one of the most preferred frameworks owing to its accommodative, dynamic and interactive nature. It uses the same mark up as HTML to extend its syntax, making it a proper platform for creating web applications using classical web designing elements. The integration of static language like HTML and a dynamic scripting language like Angular JS can’t work out wonders by creating a balance between user experience and search friendliness.

Angular JS follows the model view controller model, commonly known as Mexican. It defines the behaviour of data and the logic. The layers help in fetching the data, modified the data in accordance with the behaviour of the user and presenting it in such a way that it responds to the user behaviour. Whenever the few changes, Angular JS handles this at a controller level and displays the reactive data to the user.

Angular JS is primarily used to build dynamic web applications but it can’t find its utility in mobile applications and mobile websites as well.

Summing up the differences

There are a few differences that spell the shibboleth between Angular JS and JavaScript. JavaScript has a feature to validate user inputs at a browser level before submitting to the page. This is how you can find out if a user name exists or not even before clicking the register button on gmail. While JavaScript is designed to make websites more interactive Angular JS makes the building of the web applications simple and easy. JavaScript as a code is extremely fast. In comparison, Angular JS applications are slow. JavaScript does not depend on the behaviour of the user. It reacts according to the code by introducing sliders and graphics. Angular JS, on the other hand, is sensitive to the behaviour of the user.

JavaScript can be considered the epic tome of the development. Some of the most complex enterprise applications are developed using JavaScript. JavaScript is quite accommodative towards search engine and bots. Angular JS, on the other hand, is designed for simple single page application. It is mostly used by start-ups who would like to create a catchy and immersive experience for their clients who are more likely to be impressed by the interactive nature of their presence. JavaScript has remained a constant for a considerable amount of time. However Angular JS has been constantly parking to accommodate the growing needs of both developers and users in terms of interactive apps.


It is quite evident that both JavaScript and Angular JS are so similar and yet so different. It does not matter whether or not they are similar or different but it only matters that both the technology and the framework can combine together and create magic on the web and in web applications much to the delight of the user who consumes the content.
