Non-standard. Do not use!
The expression closure syntax is a deprecated SpiderMonkey-specific feature and will be removed. For future-facing usages, consider using arrow functions.

Expression closures are a shorthand function syntax for writing simple functions.

Syntax

function [name]([param1[, param2[, ..., paramN]]])
   expression

Parameters

name
The function name. Can be omitted, in which case the function is anonymous. The name is only local to the function body.
paramN
The name of an argument to be passed to the function. A function can have up to 255 arguments.
expression
The expression which comprise the body of the function.

Description

This addition is nothing more than a shorthand for writing simple functions, giving the language something similar to a typical Lambda notation.

JavaScript 1.7 and older:

function(x) { return x * x; }

JavaScript 1.8:

function(x) x * x

This syntax allows you to leave off the braces and 'return' statement - making them implicit. There is no added benefit to writing code in this manner, other than having it be syntactically shorter.

Examples

A shorthand for binding event listeners:

 document.addEventListener('click', function() false, true);

Using this notation with some of the array functions from JavaScript 1.6:

elems.some(function(elem) elem.type == 'text');
