A common use of JSON is to read data from a web server, and display the data in a web page.
For simplicity, this can be demonstrated by using a string as input (instead of a file).
This represents a potential security problem. Try to avoid it.
A JSON parser will recognize only JSON text and will not compile scripts.
In browsers that provide native JSON support, JSON parsers are also faster.

The JSON format was originally specified by Douglas Crockford.
