I think that is almost a religious war type of discussion...
Short answer (as it applies to me at least) If all I am doing is getting 
data from a DB and displaying it in the browser, there is little reason to 
do Javascript.

Personally my preference would be
1- Pascal
2- Python
3- PHP

PHP can do absolutely everything I need/want; the difference is that I want 
something which lends itself more easily to well organized and structured 
coding. Also When I work on php it always feels like work.. even if it 
something I am doing for fun. It is one of those subjective things... the 
reason why there are so many languages and tools out there.
