Object Prototypes JavaScript

All javascript objects inherit properties from a prototype.

For example,

Date objects inherit properties from the Date prototype

Math objects inherit properties from the Math prototype

Array objects inherit properties from the Array prototype.

On top of the chain is Object.prototype. Every prototype inherits properties and methods from the Object.prototype.

A prototype is a blueprint of an object. Prototype allows us to use properties and methods on an object even if the properties and methods do not exist on the current object.
