What Time Is It?

One common and easy use for JavaScript is to display dates and times. Since JavaScript runs on the browser, the times it displays will be in the user's current time zone. However, you can also use JavaScript to calculate “universal” (UTC) time.

Note

UTC stands for the French equivalent of Universal Coordinated Time, and is the new name for the old GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) standard. This is the time at the International Date Line, near London, England.
