There's quite a few to choose from, but if we are talking almost strictly web based, the first thing that comes to mind for most people is javascript.  The big trend I have been seeing a lot of lately is coffee script.

From their website:

CoffeeScript is a little language that compiles into JavaScript. Underneath all those awkward braces and semicolons, JavaScript has always had a gorgeous object model at its heart. CoffeeScript is an attempt to expose the good parts of JavaScript in a simple way.
The golden rule of CoffeeScript is: "It's just JavaScript". The code compiles one-to-one into the equivalent JS, and there is no interpretation at runtime. You can use any existing JavaScript library seamlessly from CoffeeScript (and vice-versa). The compiled output is readable and pretty-printed, passes through JavaScript Lint without warnings, will work in every JavaScript implementation, and tends to run as fast or faster than the equivalent handwritten JavaScript.

Honestly do yourself a favor and take a look at their website.  Coffee script will change how javascript is written in general, I have very little doubt about that.

So I'd like to state here that any code I post on this blog will either be in javascript or coffee script, this isn't set in stone, but close.
