Why is Everyone Choosing JSON Over XML for jQuery? [closed]

Basically because JSON is recognized natively by JavaScript, it’s really lightweight, minimalistic and highly portable because it relies only on two fundamental structures:

  • A collection of name/value pairs. In various languages, this is realized as an object, record, struct, dictionary, hash table, keyed list, or associative array.
  • An ordered list of values. In most languages, this is realized as an array, vector, list, or sequence.
