text/application type is deprecated

Posted on Updated on

This was news to me–RFC4329 explicity declares text/javascript to be obsolete. Instead, application/javascript is to be used. The problem? Not all browsers support it yet.

Here’s the breakdown:


  • Firefox 3.5.4 – supported

Internet Explorer

  • IE 8 – NOT supported


  • Safari 4.0.3 – supported


  • Chrome 3.0 – supported
