    Headless JavaScript

    Is JavaScript outside of the browser, without a graphical user interface. This can be considered as the core JavaScript language that tracks the ECMAScript. Browsers usually add APIs on top of these such as Document, Window, Navigator etc. on top of JavaScript, which may not be compatible across browsers. Headless JavaScript does not include these APIs.
