Our Content-Type for https://preview.addons.mozilla.org/z/en-US/firefox/addon/1865/statistics/downloads-day-20100115-20100715.json is: text/json But it should be application/json
(In reply to comment #1) > why? http://stackoverflow.com/questions/477816/the-right-json-content-type
I prefer JSON to be readable in the browser. Anything consuming JSON should be able to deal with text JSON.
Sorry for reopening, but I disagree. If the standard says application/json, then you need to fix your browser, instead of using the wrong mime type :(  https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/8207/
As far as I can tell, it is not a standard. http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4627.txt explicitly says it is not a standard. IANA has registered application/json as a valid type but that doesn't mean we have to use it. And I think usability trumps a pseduostandard, especially one that will result in most of the people viewing it being immediately annoyed.
WONTFIXing again since no one has challenged my last comment.
Verifying that you didn't read the standard ;)
