Updating ie8

For example, IE9 on Windows Vista SP2 or IE10 on Windows Server 2012 still got updates.

; 25336920-03F9-11cf-8FD0-00AA00686F13 is the CLSID for the "Browse in place" .

; [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MIME\Database\Content Type\application/json] "CLSID"="" "Encoding"=hex:08,00,00,00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MIME\Database\Content Type\text/json] "CLSID"="" "Encoding"=hex:08,00,00,00 is the CLSID for the "Browse in place" action.

Basically this registry entry is telling IE that for docs that have a mime type of application/json, just view it in place.

Generally speaking, he's about as crazy about Java Script, HTML & CSS as a squirrel is about his nuts during the winter.

While debugging j Query apps that use AJAX, I often have the need to see the json that is being returned by the service to the browser.

There are two approaches to fixing this issue, and so far I've only successfully used the non-Java Script approach.
