JSON vs. XML: An Adult Perspective
Webmaster Central’s recent addition of JSON support to its leased content services has brought the use of this technology to the forefront of adult, but what are the benefits?
“Compelling and dynamic content is an essential component for generating revenue with adult entertainment websites,” states a Webmaster Central spokesperson. “How that content is delivered is equally important, since a growing number of porn fans are now using mobile devices to connect to the Internet.”
Let’s take a closer look:
XML and JSON can do pretty much the same thing.
But JSON has growing support due to some substantial advantages.
Some experts say that browser scripting is easier when using JSON, especially when pushing server-side data to clients, such as in Webmaster Central’s example. JSON code is also much more streamlined than XML, making typical HTML documents load faster.
Take a look at how your site uses XML and see if JSON will improve the process — the cross-domain scripting advantages alone may make it well worth your while.
