parseInt versus Math.round

In JavaScript, when converting an input to a number, you have a couple of choices, you can use the built-in parseInt() function or the built-in Math.round() function to get an integer style number from a string.

Math.round will round up or down to the nearest integer value, and while it supposedly works on numbers, it (like everything in JavaScript it seems) can be called with a string variable:

parseInt('12.8') == 12
Math.round('12.8') == 13
