Global Object (JavaScript)

An intrinsic object whose purpose is to collect global functions and constants into one object.

The Global object has no syntax. You call its functions directly.

The Global object is never used directly, and cannot be created using the new operator. It is created when the scripting engine is initialized, thus making its functions and constants available immediately.

Supported in the following document modes: Quirks, Internet Explorer 6 standards, Internet Explorer 7 standards, Internet Explorer 8 standards, Internet Explorer 9 standards. See Version Information.
