JavaScript equivalent of PHP s preg replace

0 votes

I am using a simple regex to replace break tags with newlines:

br_regex = /<br>/;
input_content = input_content.replace(br_regex, "\n");

This only replaces the first instance of a break tag, but I need to replace all. preg_match_all() would do the trick in PHP, but I'd like to know the JavaScript equivalent.
