Document Format Usage

Filed under: Uncategorized — ctrambler @ 11:07 am

This interesting article by Nathan Weinberg lists the document format usage that Google Search encounters. Not surprising, Microsoft documents outnumbered Google 477 to 1. However, OpenXML format accounts only for a very tiny and insignificant number. Well, OpenXML format is relatively new, only 3 months. The figure quoted  is in the low 100. I expects it to be low, but am not expecting it to be only 125-ish.  However, it means most of the documents created are in corporate space which are not visible in internet space.

And, … I love the picture in the article. Without giving the plot away, Google search is indeed not almighty.
