Javascript IE Stumbles!

I thought I may post this little hint at the woes of Internet Explorer. Whilst creating an application laden with Javascript, testing with Firefox, and the wonder that is Firebug, all seems well.
But then comes the dreaded IE game. For some reason my Javascript failed to do what it was supposed to do. That some reason ended up being a COMMA. yes my friends, a ,! trailing at the end of a function IE gives up when it thinks the script carries on and starts looking for the rest of the code, when it cant find it, IE will give up on Javascript all together.

So next time you are pulling your hair out, just check for those commas with nothing proceeding it. That will be what Internet Explorer is moaning about, pretty much guaranteed.
