You're right, some timezones have daylight savings time problems right now.
This is on the schedule for a rev of the player.

But that still wouldn't give you universal accuracy, because not all people
have their computer clocks set correctly.

The "date" object is always good for relative time, comparing two times.
It's also often correct for absolute time. But if you need to make sure all
visitors have the correct time, then that should be handled by having a
serverside routine provide a standard time.
