Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2, offers native JSON parsing and serialization. This new native JSON functionality enables Internet Explorer 8 aware AJAX applications to run both faster and safer!

What’s JSON? For those of you that are not die hard AJAX developers, allow me to provide a bit of background. JSON is a simple human readable data interchange format often used by AJAX applications when transmitting data between the server and the web application. For example, imagine that you select a contact name from your favorite web mail client so that you can see the contact information.

{ 
          "firstName": "cyra", 
           "lastName": "richardson", 
           "address": { 
                "streetAddress": "1 Microsoft way", 
                 "city": "Redmond", 
                 "state": "WA", 
                 "postalCode": 98052 
          },

           "phoneNumbers": [ 
                "425-777-7777",  
                 "206-777-7777" 
           ] 
     }
