Relative Dates in JavaScript

I was developing an input form for a search when I came across the need to allow the user to filter items using a date range. I had two input boxes where the user could enter a start and an end date. For some of the most common date ranges, I decided to create links that could be clicked to auto-populate the start/end date textboxes. For example, searching for items that were created last week or last month. Using JavaScript’s Date object, I was able to put together some nice examples.
