I agree. Mentioned it in case anyone felt like getting overly concerned about that being a criterion. A programming language is really anything you can write a program in, and if the browser is something you can program against, it seems to fit the bill.

And if, for some reason turing completeness is something you care about, it's technically true as well.

I can can click on a something.html file on my computer and it could launch one hell of a program because it will open in a pretty powerful application environment.
