Is "document.whatever" part of the global window object ?

Just cant get my head around weather or not document is its own global object or if its an object inside an object?

In JavaScript that runs in the browser, everything is technically part of the global window object, including your code. The document object is no different. You can access it either at document or window.document, but it's the same object either way
