With JavaScript move from untypted language to typed language and adding class syntax to come closer to Java/C# and also Java move toward functional programming and emerge of modern languages such as Kotlin, would browser (and HTML5) still pick JavaScript as a language to support dynamic content?

To me, feels like JavaScript+HTML5 are trying to solve what Java Applets tried to solve in early days of Java but pure Java was not a good solution. However, Kotlin + HTML5 probably would be better option today if we were not stick to tons of applications and users that still rely on JavaScript in their browsers. Or are there any specific features in JavaScript that still makes it best solution?

You might consider posting this on a site for more general discussion because it doesn't seem to ask a support question.

P.S. Judging by how hard it has been to get rid of Flash, I don't think JavaScript is going anywhere.
