new Date("1969-12-22") Date Mon Dec 22 1969 01:00:00 GMT+0100 (Greenwich Mean Time) new Date("1969/12/22") Date Mon Dec 22 1969 00:00:00 GMT+0100 (Greenwich Mean Time)
Notice the time in the first example is one hour ahead of the time in the second, but the date is exactly the same, just in a different format.
The problem this gives me is that I am unable to use
.getTime() to compare timestamps for equality.
Does anyone know why the extra hour?
