No Capitalisation in French?

Seriously, don't we need to capitalise the first letter in names of places, countries, languages, etc. like we do in English!?

Duo writes words like:

europeenne japonaise

French capitalises words differently, so does German actually. Here's a useful link about capitalisation in french: http://french.about.com/library/writing/bl-capitalization.htm

Thanks! The french.about website I linked above is also useful for conjugations and for explaining other grammar rules which I've repeatedly used when learning french.
