Convert UTC date time to local date time using JavaScript

From the server I get a datetime variable in this format:

6/29/2011 4:52:48 PM
and it is in UTC time. I want to convert it to the current user's browser time using JavaScript.

How this can be done using JavaScript or jQuery?

Answer

Append 'UTC' to the string before converting it to a date in javascript:

var date = new Date('6/29/2011 4:52:48 PM UTC');
date.toString() // "Wed Jun 29 2011 09:52:48 GMT-0700 (PDT)"
