Chrome, Safari and Firefox serialize Date objects to strings such as 'Mon May 28 2012 00:00:00 GMT-0700 (PDT)'. When these strings are parsed the zone is interpreted as 'GMT-0700' which doesn't exist in the TzInfo list of timezones. By taking advantage of the improved date/time handling in 1.9.3 we can use `Date._parse` and the `:offset` value which is parsed correctly. Three tests were amended to make them pass: 1. test_parse_with_old_date This needed changing to a different value because the original value was before EST was adopted so was being changed to a LMT (Local Mean Time) value after the change. It didn't before because `DateTime` just has offsets from UTC not timezones. 2. test_parse_should_not_black_out_system_timezone_dst_jump Changed the implementation of this test as the stubs were dependent on internal implementation details of the test. Confirmed that the modified test still failed when the implementation of `parse` was restored to pre-#5571. 3. test_parse_should_black_out_app_timezone_dst_jump Ditto. Closes #5770.
