Steps to reproduce

The application/json MIME type is not the only MIME type used for JSON content. The application/vnd.api+json MIME type, for example, is used by the JSON API. Edge does not support it, so JSON API content does not render in the browser - instead, the browser thinks it’s a binary format and tries to download it.
Also, as it is not supported, error pages that are returned in the JSON API format do not show up.

    • This is the same for application/vnd.collection+json, application/hal+json, etc. Now that +json has been standardized (http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6839#section-3.1) it would be great if Edge could render the JSON content for all media types that contain the +json suffix.
