For hard cord Javascript developers this comes as no surprise but if you, like me, do all your work in Firefox (of course with Firebug installed) then you need to keep a close eye on the correctness of your Javascript syntax because Internet Explorer will have some difference ways of thinking about it. Here's what I learnt the other day. This works perfectly in Firefox:

var person = { age:27, name:"Peter", };

But if you run that in IE you get "Expected identifier, string or number".

I know that SQL raises syntax errors on trailing commas but Python sure doesn't and I like that.

What a pointless rant this was. More like a note to self that might hopefully help someone else some day.
