Js string endsWith() polyfill and other string functions

When you are a C# developer and want javascript to be more like C#:

if (!String.prototype.endsWith) {
    String.prototype.endsWith = function(searchString, position) {
        var subjectString = this.toString();
        if (typeof position !== 'number' || !isFinite(position) || Math.floor(position) !== position || position > subjectString.length) {
            position = subjectString.length;
        }
        position -= searchString.length;
        var lastIndex = subjectString.lastIndexOf(searchString, position);
        return lastIndex !== -1 && lastIndex === position;
    };
}
