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 operator in the global scope. In fact, the global scope consists of the properties of the global object (including inherited properties, if any).
Standard objects (by category)
Global properties returning a simple value.
Global functions returning the result of a specific routine.
General language objects, functions and errors.
Numbers and dates
Objects dealing with numbers, dates and mathematical calculations.
