Actually, what completely turned me off javascript now that I've had to use it 
to write a complex application for the past few months is that the language 
is prototype based and not object oriented. That means it's a really bad fit 
with Qt. That, and the insane scope rules, the lack of multi-threading the 
curiously underpowered string "class" really turn me off javascript, not the
relation with web pages, html or incompatible implementations.
