Check if a value is an object in javascript

How to check in JavaScript if the value of a variable is an object?

Answer

Try using typeof(var) and/or var instanceof something.

EDIT: This answer gives an idea of how to examine variable's properties, but it is not a bulletproof recipe (after all there's no recipe at all!) for checking whether it's an object, far from it. Since people tend to look for something to copy from here without doing any research, I'd highly recommend that they turn to the other, most upvoted (and correct!) answer.
