Java (not to be confused JavaScript which is completely different) is the most popular programming language today. Followed by C/C++ and C#. JavaScript is the most popular web site scripting tool. Please be aware that the popularity of programming language is very dynamic. A language's popularity can change rapidly in the course of a year or two.
