JSONP

JSONP is short for JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) with padding. JSONP is a way to resolve issues encountered when requesting files from servers. Many servers cannot share files due to cross-domain policies. However, they can send scripts. So, instead of using XMLHttpRequest object, JSONP uses <script> tag. JSONP thus helps improve developer usability by solving cross-domain issues.
