Getting system timezone in Javascript

Hi,

I want to know if I can get the system time zone in Javascript. I am able to get the timezone offset by calling getTimezoneOffset. But this gives me the difference between the local time and UTC. Is it possible to get the timezone ID (expanded/ short) like "US/Pacific" or "PST".

Thanks in advance.
