What is the main difference between Client side JavaScript and Server side Java Script? How actually they run on both side?

To state the main difference, JavaScript at the client side does not require a web server to make it run instead it uses the client's processor for this purpose. This eradicates the portability issue. But in server side JavaScript deployment, portability, configuration are major and vast issues and requires a web server to run the script within a page before rendering its output as a response html page.

How can JavaScript make a Web site easier to use?
JavaScript’s run on the client side which saves the server roundtrip time for small processing. It means that it makes web pages more interactive as everything is not required to be submitted at the server. Let’s consider a small clock if controlled by the server then the transmission time will make the clock faulty in this case java script is used.
