comment Why are most browsers developed in C++
+10 - Other than raw performance, I think this is the REAL reason most browsers are in C++ with the exception of IE. Most browsers work on multiple platforms and there are few languages/frameworks that can perform at the same level AND be cross-platform compatible.

comment When is it reasonable to create my own programming language?
I do have to mention that in "The Pragmatic Programmer" that writing smaller, domain-specific languages to aid in a task is incredibly helpful and encouraged. I wouldn't recommend writing a full-fledged general purpose language, but a metalanguage that generates code can be helpful at times.
