      changing line 5450 from
      predefined['eval'] =
      predefined[["e", "v", "a", "l"].join("")] =

      Fixes the need for evil : false
      No longer any strict violations in most recent upload of fulljslint.js


      Would still like to see usage of ^ regex operator removed from lines 953, 958, and 1033 as it is recommended against use,
      or at least rational for use in comment.

      What is the equivalent for IE? as window is not defined when one picks browser : true
