Implicit and explicit delegation
No "criticism" section?
ECMAScript 2015 seems to be commonly known as ES6 which appears also to follow the ECMA announcement. e.g. here and here and here. Is there some political reason why the article doesn't mention it? Chris55 (talk) 11:55, 19 November 2017 (UTC)
Vendor-specific extensions is outdated as of Jan 2018
The vendor-specific extensions section was originally written around 2009 or so, and it's badly out of date.
Some of the features mentioned, such as the let statement, have been moved directly into ECMAScript and thus are no longer vendor-specific. Other features, such as the iterator protocol, although not directly migrated into ECMAScript, have inspired alternatives in ECMAScript. And yet others, such as array comprehensions and generator expressions, are now being removed from Mozilla's JS engine ala E4X.
Unfortunately, I'm not as well-versed with JS nowadays, so I can't update this section with absolute certainty myself.

Security section (renamed?)
What is the meaning of this claim?
- I've removed it. Even if it's true, why mention it? If a comparison with Perl is to be made, it should be done elsewhere in the article. Rp (talk) 16:33, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
More bold claims
Right now there is the following text in the article:
the language was officially called LiveScript when it first shipped in beta releases of Netscape Navigator 2.0 in September 1995
