You can ask them :)

haXe is not related to ECMA/JS. It's an independant language which have
some common points in its semantic. In particular, it's pretty easy to
generate a .js from an haXe program.
NekoVM does not run JS, but haXe can also target Neko, although the API
are different from JS ones.
JS itself is pretty crossbrowser. What is not crossbrowser are the JS
apis. haXe helps here by bringing a typesystem that can help hidding
these differences behind correctly designed APIs.
