Solution 1

It defines a variable, which effectively defines it's scope as the current block.

If you use it, then it always creates a new variable with the given name, if you don't, then it looks back up the current scope(s) until it finds a variable with that name already and uses that instead. Or creates a new variable if it doesn't find one.

I would recommend that you use var whenever you can, as it prevents mistakes later if you didn't mean to use a global variable of the same name in two different functions!
