PHP New Operators

Stunning similarity

Am I the only one thinking that there is a great similitude between the new PHP version and ECMAScript? The type equality operator (triple equals) and the null coalescing (setting a default value in JS like: var a = b || 'Foo') are clearly a rip-off if I can call it so. Just wanted to point it out and find the story behind this because I find it really interesting. Thanks
