Why do you need strict mode in Javascript?

Posted by Andre Scott | Updated on

Strict mode is useful to write “secure” JavaScript by notifying “bad syntax” into real errors. For example, it eliminates accidentally creating a global variable by throwing an error and also throws an error for assignment to a non-writable property, a getter-only property, a non-existing property, a non-existing variable, or a non-existing object.
