    Substrings in Javascript with substring() 

    How to use String.substring(start, to)

    The old method substr() is deprecated so screw that. The preferred method is to now use substring().

    (start,to) arguments explained:

    start – This is the position to start extracting the string from.   Zero based, so the first character is 0, then 1 and so on.

    to – This is the position to copy to and should obviously be greater than start.   It does not include the character at to. So, if to is the same as start then nothing will be returned. If to is not present then the rest of the string from start is returned.

    The examples below use the following string.

    var s = "abcdefghij"

    The first example returns the characters from positions 5 to 6. Remember that the string is zero indexed so the character at position 5 in the above string is “f”

    s.substring(5, 7); // returns "fg"

    The second example returns the characters from 5 to the end of the string:

    s.substring(5); // returns "fghij"

    The next example returns the characters from positions 0 to 4 (i.e. 5 characters in total):

    s.substring(0, 5); // returns "abcde"

    Google Chrome Tip #1 – about:commands (stats for nerds) 

    As most Web Developers know by now, Google Chrome is THE browser to develop in. It had a bit of a rocky start (for instance the PNG transparency bug), but it really wasn’t too rocky compared to other browsers (IE8, still a total mess, is riddled with bugs & security issues). Usually anything Google touches eventually turns to Gold and Chrome is no exception to that rule. Fast, Smart, Efficient and just plain Cool. So what’s going on backstage in the Chrome browser? Much like 2 other great browsers (Firefox and Opera), Google Chrome is not at all afraid to let you see. So, if you’re an Uber Geek, Web Guru, Developer, or a just a Curious Monkey, you will want to eventually have a peek into some of those nerd stats. Just type these operator:commands into the browser address bar :

    This command will analyze the memory Chrome and each tab.

    Displays the name resolution, including performance.

    This displays the various performance measures browser.

    For now, Chrome does not have a formal mechanism for developers to graft extensions.But this mechanism will be in future versions ..Especially since the browser actually already supports extensions like Gears, DivX, Flash, Acrobat, Quicktime and ActiveX. Extensions revealed by this command.

    This command reveals much of the inner workings of the browser. It displays the current performance of different modules that make up Chrome and allows to study the performance of the browser more closely (or compare the differences in speed Chrome on two different machines).

    Very useful for Web developers and network administrators, this command will trace the network activity of a tab and display graphics performance to measure the load time of the various elements.

    This command specifies the version number and build number of Chrome.

    This command simulates a crash of the Web application and therefore the current tab. It can discover the error message displayed by Chrome when such incidents arise.

    It is the easter egg (Easter egg surprise Chrome).
