2.1.19 [ECMA-262/5] Section, Array.prototype.sort (comparefn)


The specification states:

 NOTE 2 The sort function is intentionally generic; it does not require that its this value be an Array object. Therefore, it can be transferred to other kinds of objects for use as a method. Whether the sort function can be applied successfully to a host object is implementation-dependent.

IE9 Mode, IE10 Mode, IE11 Mode, and EdgeHTML Mode (All Versions)

The sort method can be applied to a host object; however, some host objects may reject such an application.
