Humour: M$ takes over the net?

Here is an interesting little trick.

Open your browser (any gecko based browser, this doesn’t work in IE, but since there are at least half a dozen ways to get to micro$oft from within IE, that doesn’t mean you have to miss out. :-) ), and type: http::// in the address bar.

If your experience is anything like mine was, Micro$ofts web page will open in your browser.
It’s also the first result that shows up in Google..

How on earth did http::// end up going to Micro$ofts web site? Should we all be tightening our tinfoil hats?

Or is it just a weird quirk of Googles ranking engine?

I’ll leave that up to you.
