    Well, any dev that doesn't read the docs really.

    Having stringy sort by default is actually better because converting to integer sort is as simple as arr.sort((a, b) => a - b) but if it was integer sort by default, you would have to do
    arr.sort((a, b) => {
    if (a < b) return -1
    if (a > b) return 1
    return 0
    to convert it to stringy sort.

    How about the correct sort depending on the array containing numbers or strings? Like in all normal languages?

    Or an extra lexicographicSort()?

    Meh, just don't take random sorting algorithm for granted. It will save the embarrassment.

    @vintprox I’d call it surpriseSort()

    @Lensflare If you sort an array that only contains numbers it'll sort correctly, it only sorts in a "stringy" way if all elements except one are strings. In all other cases the behavior is undefined because the standard dictates that the relation function must be transitive and ">" on a mixed set of numbers and strings isn't transitive.
