Update for IE8 JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) following ECMAScript 5th edition syntax

Just noticed an update (released as important) by Microsoft via Windows Update regarding IE8’s JSON support.
Quoting from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/976662:

Windows Internet Explorer 8 is the first Microsoft Web browser that includes native support for encoding and for decoding JavaScript Object Notation (JSON). Because of the new ECMAScript specification changes, some customers have reported issues. These issues are caused by deviations between the native JSON feature in Internet Explorer 8 and the final specification. An update is now available to address these customer issues and improve JSON interoperability of Internet Explorer 8. This update enables JSON interoperability of Internet Explorer 8 to keep in conformance with the new "ECMAScript, fifth edition" standard specification.
This update corrects deviations in the following methods:

  • JSON.stringify (value [, replacer] [, space])
  • JSON.parse (test [, reviver])
  • toJSON ()

Note Most of this update applies to invalid argument values or to other irregular situations. For more information about this update, see the ”More information" section.
