Math.min(a,b)  // 13 chars
a<b?a:b        //  7 chars

Math.max(a,b)
a>b?a:b

Another small golfing gem from codegolf stackexchange. This isn’t immediately obvious, but cool to note when golfing.

It’s also worth mentioning that if your code is long enough, aliasing Math.min and/or Math.max may be shorter in the long run:

m = Math.min
Math.min(a,b)  // 13 chars
a<b?a:b        //  7 chars
m(a,b)         //  6 chars
