Client-Side versus Server-Side Scripting - HTML

There are two basic varieties of scripting, client-side and server-side. As their names imply, the main difference is where the scripts are actually executed.

Client-side scripting
Client-side scripts are run by the client software—that is, the user agent. As such, they impose no additional load on the server, but the client must support the scripting language being used. JavaScript is the most popular client-side scripting language, but Jscript and VBScript are also widely used. Client-side scripts are typically embedded in HTML documents and deployed to the client. As such, the client user can usually easily view the scripts.

For security reasons, client-side scripts generally cannot read or write to the server or client file system
