How to access request query string parameters in javascript?

I've seen numerous solutions that utilize RegEx, and to be quite frank, that seems ridiculously excessive since javascript is so versatile.

There must be a simpler way to access request parameters.

Could somebody demonstrate for me?

I found a useful method in the depths of the net.

function querySt(Key) {
    var url = window.location.href;
    KeysValues = url.split(/[\?&]+/);
    for (i = 0; i < KeysValues.length; i++) {
        KeyValue = KeysValues[i].split("=");
        if (KeyValue[0] == Key) {
            return KeyValue[1];

Downvotes and plugins aside, thanks anyways.
