richardcornish / JavaScript madness
Last active Aug 29, 2015
An incomplete list of bizarre failings of the JavaScript programming language
View JavaScript madness
- Prototypal inheritance forces an unstated empty object onto your object with key "prototype"
- functions can act as object constructors but with the same syntax
- empty array members break loops
- Infinity/-Infinity
- +0/-0
- null is an object
- testing NaN === NaN is *always false*
- typeof always returns "object" for all different reference types
- the type of NaN (not a number) is literally "number" but as a string
- void looks like a Java class but its only job is to return undefined
You can’t perform that action at this time.
