Part: I Core JavaScript > The Global Object and Statements

Chapter 11. The Global Object and Statements

The Global object is an object which ECMAScript defines, but which you cannot access directly. It is a wrapper for functions and objects available throughout the JavaScript language.

Netscape refers to these functions and objects as top-level. In a way, this is appropriate—you don't access them as properties of any given object. The window object is the Global object as far as client side JavaScript is concerned, so it has all objects and functions this chapter covers as properties and methods, respectively.
