What's more powerful, JavaScript or Python?

Asked by Gamer44 (94 points ) September 16th, 2010 from iPhone

What would you consider more powerful in terms of building web apps? I’ve seen both of the languages do some pretty amazing things. But which is better and why?

Python is server side. You use python to output HTML/CSS/Javascript that the browser interprets. Your browser doesn’t know what Python is.

Yes, but web apps can still be written in python, correct?

Yes… Fluther is written in Python (Django). But it uses Python to output HTML/CSS/Javascript. Your browser never sees Python.

Javascript and Python are night and day. You can’t compare them. They are different things.

What do you mean by “powerful” and what is your criteria for “better”? I don’t know how to answer this question.
