Is Javascript 'good enough' as the language of the (front end) web?   [Edit]

Survey period: 20 Jul 2009 to 27 Jul 2009

Firefox and Chrome have boosted Javascript performance. Is this enough headroom, or do we need a different language on the browser front-end?

OK.. whatever. It's just my hope that someday, sometime, there will be something better than HTML, that's all I'm getting at. Right now it works, and well. Understood. I never tried to berate HTML as THE language of the web, just hoping that we'll come up with something a little easier to develop eventually.
