The JSON Website file format
Technical details of JSON files
JSON files are used as a data interchange format. This interchange commonly occurs between computers that are connected via the internet. Thus, it is rarely the case that files with a JSON extension are saved on a computer's hard drive. Some applications however still use this file format. For example: profile data from Google+ could be saved and downloaded in the JSON file format, while Mozilla Firefox uses said file format to store bookmark backup data.
