Javascript will work on any browser that supports it because it is client-side. PHP only works on servers in which it is installed

And which do you think is best?

 

As a web designer, with which one you know that user is seeing a date?

 

 

And R3d Javascript is really worth learning. It isn't the best technology to get a date or time to your website but you can do lot of stuff that are really useful for your visitors. A typical example is manipulating form data on client side. For example, it is extremely useful to be able to check/uncheck all checkboxes at once.

My view is that Javascript shouldn't be used to replace server-side stuff but to do stuff that are useful (ie. not just flashy) but not possible or very clumsy with server-side program.

The problem with JS is that it rely the user computer time, if the user computer date and time is not adjusted then the time showing will be inaccurate.For PHP it read the server time, no matter what date and time setting is made on the user computer the result will remain consistent and unaffected by the user computer setting.Most users will have no problem viewing becos PHP will return the time and date in plain text format whereas JS may have problem with users who choose to disable JS for security reasons and older browser that do not support JS.Hope the above explainations will help you to see what want you are choosing and what to expect.
