Does visual studio on a Mac need a special run plugin/setup for javascript?

Hi
I'm not sure I'm approaching it correctly to run Javascript in MacBook Visual Studio Code.
One page suggests a Code Runner install from marketplace.visualstudio.com
but I'd like confirmation that that is exactly what I'd want.
Will it run my javascript in a browser, or equivalent environment? how? Is there a special setup needed?

does everyone have this issue?

Thanks

I works in the console with the node command.

Is that what everyone does?

I currently am on windows, but it works the same. I always run my js in the browser and debug using f12 dev tools.
