Standard built-in objects
The term "global objects" (or standard built-in objects) here is not to be confused with the global object. Here, global objects refer to objects in the global scope (but only if ECMAScript 5 strict mode is not used! Otherwise it returns
undefined). The global object itself can be accessed by the
this (en-US) operator in the global scope. In fact, the global scope consists of the properties of the global object (including inherited properties, if any).
