I've recently had an interest in browser based games, like all the flash games you see on various sites I'm sure everyone visits when they're bored. Now I've been playing around with game design in Python, but in researching it I've discovered there's really no decent way to use Python alone in creating these games.
Everywhere I read says use Java, but to be honest I spent some time with Java and I hate it. Is there any other good language, possibly like Python, that can be used to create these games? Or am I just SOL without Java?
EDIT: Was also not at all sure whether to place this in this section or the programming one, so I apologize if I picked wrong.
