JavaScript has become increasingly popular and is arguably one of the most widely used languages on the Internet.

Many great libraries are available to help with development, but sometimes, these libraries are so removed from the original language that beginning developers lack an understanding of the language fundamentals. This article, part 8 in a series, continues the fundamentals of JavaScript with events, try...catch statements, cookie use, and timing functions.
