ECMAScript is a standard made for the JavaScript scripting language. It was created for JavaScript to run the same on all browsers, since different ones used different versions of JavaScript.

In November 1996, Netscape announced a meeting of Ecma International to standardize JavaScript. Microsoft critcised this decision, since they were leading in the JavaScript war with their Internet Explorer browser.
