I discovered the simpleton's beauty in it a year or two ago.

The need to get multiple pieces of data back from AJAX. It can do much more but I like to imagine it was designed and built for this purpose - where only one string comes back. No more worries with parsers where where, no matter what delimiter I choose some jackass user decided they must have it in their input. Even '|' had its sanctity violated. (I gave up and sanitize all user input). JSON gets rid of that for me in the name of "going forward".

One oddity in my use:   I typically build the JSON stings from my own code but do convert them back with the ubiquitous version of it that exist it most languages (that I care about).

One thing - you'll likely do your own research: SQL Server actually allows a JSON type - a type that can be searched with with SQL WHERE clauses. So I asked my fearless leader, a particularly good DBA, what he thought of it. Apparently, as he sees it, the overhead involved will be horrific in terms of performance.
