V8 team fixes JSON.parse()

V8 team fixes JSON.parse()

Good news ...


If anyone remembers how jQuery forum JSON.parse "upheaval" started ( a month ago?). When we noticed that JSON.parse() allows illegal JSON string syntax ?  And when strict conformance to JSON syntax was introduced.

Well I made a little fuss over there and I was notified today this is fixed ,  inside V8.
Now it just has to surface in some near future CHROME update.

This news might ( just might!) allow jQuery ajax *not* to do "manual" checking of data , before passing it to JSON.parse(). But to do it only for browsers which still do not have native JSON.
