  Livescript, putting the "Live" back into Javascript
So, with a Livescript website, you can tell your friends or members what page you're updating and when, and they can watch the page building without refreshing the page......
The accessibility of a website, for those who can't or don't use a mouse to browse, is improved with the livescript functions as the focus does not move from a link when it is clicked.
This option is only available if Livescript is active, which you can see at the bottom left of this site.

  The disappearing line - SunWorld - December 1995
LiveScript is included in Netscape's HTML language for its Navigator 2.0 release, which is in beta now and due to go production shortly.
LiveScript solves some of these problems by allowing you to put code on the client side that allows the browser to update a page in place, although it still doesn't allow any communication from the server back to the LiveScript program.
But because LiveScript is interpreted, you would have to send the entire source code over the network from the server to the client every time, and the browser may take a while to run the code.

The language was invented in 1995 and called LiveScript or ECMAScript by Netscape.
The reason why is because Java came on the market, and programmers all over the place saw their chance to make the Web dynamic.
The idea is that exactly the same language fizzled when it was called LiveScript and succeeded greatly when it was JavaScript, simply because it was a "Java" language.

 Add persistence and peer-to-peer computing to Java applets hosted by Netscape 3.0.1 - Java World
In the past, developers have used several different techniques -- cookies, CGI scripts, and LiveScript, to name a few -- to create persistence and to perform computing on the server.
LiveScript supports communications over sockets, but without a bit of fancy programming it is not able to transmit portions of a program while the program is in operation.
To do this with LiveScript (and also CGI), you would need to develop a line protocol -- a definition of how the bits and bytes move over the wire -- which is time consuming, error prone, and dangerous from a security perspective.

I've recently got hold of the latest netscape, and was (at first) very excited about the new "LiveScripts" that it supports.
The "LiveScript" that I wrote extracts ALL the history of the current netscape window.
By history I mean ALL the pages that you have visited to get to my page, it then generates a string of these and forces the Netscape client to load a URL that is a CGI script with the QUERY_STRING set to the users History.

 Directions for Java
Building an execution environment to safely handle all the myriad of tricks that programmers will throw at it is not a simple or easy task.
Access to disk, access to local and remote network services, and the ability to pull the browser to a new URL are all privileges that should be orthogonally configurable, by site, by machine, or by applet.
I could then set my browser only to run Livescripts signed by someone I know (or an agency that vets them for bugs), and only run Java with minimal trust in the absence of signatures.

According to JavaScript: Past, Present and Future, the Netscape team initially considered using Java as a way to make web pages "more dynamic" but decided that Java was a better option "for buliding components and not simple, easy-to-tweak scripts".
The nice thing about LiveScript was that it was truly a scripting language, so you didn't need to compile the code and you didn't need to design classes — you just started coding.
It's one of those classic marketing mistakes that are made when the gap between the marketing people and the people who build and design the technology is too great.

 Vrong Planet - JavaScript History   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The language’s first official name, LiveScript, was a reference to Netscape’s LiveWire platform, an integrated server-side environment for managing Web sites, building server applications and interfacing with databases.
In the early days, Netscape executives often said LiveScript was Java based, because it drew a lot of its basic syntax from Java.
Sun executives always bristled at this comparison, mainly because Sun had no part in the creation of LiveScript and was unsure what effect the simple scripting language would have on its more complex but infinitely more powerful Java programming language.
