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

Last Modified: 2020-01-16
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?
