var j = parseInt("012); different on firefox than chrome?
I am using firefox instead of chrome and with firefox I get j = 12 and not 10 as in the video. Is this cause for concern?
Have a look at the Teachers notes on that video:
Please note that newer browsers will return 12 for parseInt("012") and not 10. This is because the default second parameter is now 10 for decimal instead of 8 for octal.
Always specify the base if you're parsing a string to maximize compatibility.
parseInt("012", 10); //For decimal parseInt("012", 8); //For octal"
I just tried it using FF and got 12
