Why are Java and C programming languages on the decline?

According to the newly updated rankings for December 2021 by Tiobe, an index that generates the findings based on web searches.

According to the newly updated rankings for December 2021 by Tiobe, an index that generates the findings based on web searches, Python’s programming language has overtaken numerous other languages, such as Java, JavaScript, and C, as the most popular programming language.

The index is based solely on the number of searches for languages on search engines, not on the greatest programming language per se or the language in which the most lines of code have been created.

Python’s ascension to the top of the index isn’t exclusively due to increased searches; other languages have seen a drop in popularity or searches. C dropped from first to second place in the ratings, down 4.69 per cent, and Java dropped from second to third place, down 2.41 per cent.

C++, C#, Visual Basic, JavaScript, Assembly Language, SQL, and Swift rounded out the top ten languages in the December 2021 index. It’s also worth noting that PHP has been removed from the list.

Over the last two decades, Tiobe, a business that specialises in software quality testing and monitoring, has tracked the adoption of programming languages. It builds its index by querying famous search engines and websites like Google, Bing, Yahoo!, Wikipedia, and YouTube. During the process, 25 search engines and websites are examined.
