Search for "http" on Google
I was trying to remember if the second "T" in HTTP stood for "transfer" or "transport," because let's face it, even code monkey geeks don't think about it every day. To find out, I typed it into Google because of their convenient link to the definition.
What was interesting was the search results. Ranked first among the 576 million results was Microsoft, followed by AltaVista, Yahoo, the W3C, Excite, Lycos, CNN, Amazon, the Merriam-Webster dictionary, Mapquest, Adobe, Go.com, Dogpile, Netscape, the World Health Organization, Google itself, Metacrawler, The New York Times, Real Networks and finally, The Internet Movie Database.
Interesting top 20 search for "http." Any guesses on how it arrives at that result?
