#1675 closed change (fixed)

Use String.trim() to strip leading/trailing whitespaces

Currently most of our code is using .replace(/^\s+/, "").replace(/\s+$/, "") in order to remove leading and trailing whitespaces in a string. However since Firefox 3.5, Chrome 23 and Safari 5, there is String.trim() which does the same in a more readable and more efficient way.

What to change

Use .trim() to remove leading and trailing whitespaces, where currently regular expressions are used.
