C++ vs JavaScript: What are the differences?

What is C++? Has imperative, object-oriented and generic programming features, while also providing the facilities for low level memory manipulation. C++ compiles directly to a machine's native code, allowing it to be one of the fastest languages in the world, if optimized.

What is JavaScript? Lightweight, interpreted, object-oriented language with first-class functions. JavaScript is most known as the scripting language for Web pages, but used in many non-browser environments as well such as node.js or Apache CouchDB. It is a prototype-based, multi-paradigm scripting language that is dynamic,and supports object-oriented, imperative, and functional programming styles.

C++ and JavaScript can be categorized as "Languages" tools.

"Performance", "Control over memory allocation" and "Cross-platform" are the key factors why developers consider C++; whereas "Can be used on frontend/backend", "It's everywhere" and "Lots of great frameworks" are the primary reasons why JavaScript is favored.

According to the StackShare community, JavaScript has a broader approval, being mentioned in 5080 company stacks & 6471 developers stacks; compared to C++, which is listed in 199 company stacks and 371 developer stacks.
