JavaScript the value of this inside closure

The this keyword inside the inner() function also refers to the Window object. This is because:

When a function is invoked as a function rather than as a method, the this keyword refers to the global object. Confusingly, this is true even when a nested function is invoked (as a function) within a containing method that was invoked as a method: the this keyword has one value in the containing function but (counterintuitively) refers to the global object within the body of the nested function.
