When passing jsonp parameter, the API returns "application/json" instead of "application/javascript".

I found this because if you do:

<script src=''></script>

On Google Chrome, it doesn't work. You need to add

<script src='' type='text/javascript'></script>

And even then you get a warning in the console.

Nothing serious but it's not a big change either.

Its odd that no-one complained about this oversight for so long, good catch.

This has been deployed to the API, StackAuth will follow sometime in the near-ish future.

maybe not a lot of people are using the jsonp variant of the API – Pablo Fernandez Oct 11 '10 at 19:55
@Pablo: Well, I'm not too sure about that - I'm using it quite a bit. – Nathan Osman Nov 10 '10 at 22:13
@pablo's statement that 'it doesn't work' is incorrect. the content-type may not be correct but chrome handles it just fine, with a warning. both george and i have been leveraging jsonp since day 1 with full browser support. – Sky Sanders Nov 12 '10 at 2:18
