How popular is JavaScript?

It has gained lot of popularity because of the many libraries developed such as jQuery, Bootstrap, Node.JS, Win.JS, dojo etc. Together with HTML5 it has become all the more popular for web development.

The popularity of a programming language is described by an index called the TIOBE Index.
TIOBE index provides a measure for the popularity of programming languages as mined from search engines. It includes many browser results as well as many programming languages. The index is published every month and for the month of January you can find it here:
