Core JavaScript main classes

Core JavaScript, or the JavaScript provided by your browser, makes nine classes (read:objects) available to start developing with. These are:

  • Array
  • Boolean
  • Date
  • Function
  • Math
  • Number
  • Object
  • RegExp
  • String

All these classes are open. You can modify the class definition at runtime, in most cases to add/alter methods). This may lead to a question.
