Javascript Date return NaN in IE 8

Well, UTC suppose to be universal date-time format, but when I do Date.parse() or new Date() with UTC string in IE8, it returns null / NaN  ( while all the browser, including IE9, works ).  Well, it turns out that IE 6 - 8 doesn't understand UTC date-time format :)  Not surprise though, it is IE after-all.

This website has a metrics of javascript Date support for all browsers, pretty handy.

One of the solutions is to override Date.parse() when the browser is an IE.

  1. Hi Roy,

    thank you for confirming, I've also wasted a hour of my life for this. One more reason to adore that browser.
