IE Date Parsing Doesn’t Work Like Chrome
I noticed a goofy issue today while working with a jQuery countdown plugin. This plugin allows you to set an “until” date so that you counter counts down to zero at a certain date and time.
I was setting the date like this:
In Chrome, this worked just fine. The string “10/13/14 00:00:00″ parsed to a Date object for midnight on October 13th, 2014.
So, be aware of this oddity! It caused my whole countdown widget to screw up because the current time was already past the “until” date.#
