I fully recommend Haskell. Follow this. Haskell will give you one of the best grasps of programming you can get from a single language, allowing for rather easy transition to most languages (virtually all the "major" ones). You may find it odd at first, but just stick with it. You'll thank me later when you can pick up a language you've heard is weird in a day or two.

In the beginning there was walrii. In the end there will be walrii. All hail our supreme leader
But what about cross-browser compatibility?
From experience on forums, a lot of people start with Python, VB.Net, Lua or Java. Java used to be a nice language for 2D games and simple applications, but Oracle has ruined it with full of overzealous security protections. I can't really help much, though, because the only language I really dabbled into was VB, but it seems like those four, especially python, are the ones people start with the most. Some people also found Ruby to be easy to start with.Also for Lua programmers there is LOVE 2D that is available for making 2D games.What do you want to program, by the way? And for which computer platform? Some languages might be better than others at specific things.
