In a world… where equality is not transitive…

A co-worker pointed out to me today that in Javascript, equality is not transitive.

For example:

  • ” == 0
  • 0 == ‘0’
  • ” != ‘0’

I think it’s because of the way type inference works. I like this, but I can understand how it would grate on some folks.
