I think ...

Apart from understanding various data formats (like, (X)HTML, XML
etc.), the browser communicates to the server (generically speaking,
HTTP services) via HTTP. If you are saying, the browser can
communicate to various domains, then it essentially does a HTTP
request/response to difference servers, and wraps a HTTP protocol
request/response over a JSON data object.

IMHO, what's different (great) about this scenario?
