A list of helpful JavaScript resources (free)

Recently I’ve been refreshing my rudimentary JavaScript skills. Listening to a Mr. Crockford makes me all humble and sentimental. Did you know that he was somewhat involved in the development of Maniac Mansion – mainly in porting the Lucasfilm Games SCUMM engine for Nintendo?

Anyhow, here is my list of free online JavaScript resources that I’ve found extremely helpful. Not all of them are necessary for beginners, but I am sure the list contains something for everyone.
