RedMonk has updated its quarterly list that ranks the most popular programming languages, and JavaScript came out on top. Several other languages commonly used for Web development also ranked highly. For example, Python was 3rd, PHP 4th, CSS 7th and Ruby 8th. The report that accompanied the list called special attention to Ruby, which has bounced around in the rankings quite a bit. It noted, "This quarter’s ranking of #8 is the lowest for Ruby to date."

The RedMonk ratings are based on data from GitHub and Stack Overflow.
