HTTP is an obscure protocol according to Google
The first result? Microsoft. Second... AltaVista! Third, Yahoo. Oh, I hadn't noticed, the W3C was 4th. Apple appeared on page 3 just below www.whitehouse.gov and above slashdot.org.
None of the titles or descriptions for the pages above the page about the HTTP protocol contain the word HTTP, and the only ones closely web related are W3C, PHP and Apache.
Contrast those results from the results of the same query on MSN Search.
Maybe the web just isn't relevant anymore. HTTP is dead, long live HTTP!
