    I encountered with this GWS while using firefox addon called ServerSpy which tells about the server software of the website. When I visited Google.com, I was surprised to see that it is using GWS. A server software I have never heard about before. So, I researched a little. But there was no authenticated info, I could get. Some says it is modified apache server or some says it is a new kind of server software. Some says it is open source and some says proprietary software.

    So, I would like to have participation from all to know what is actually GWS - Google web Server..
    It would be helpful to all.


    Thanks..

    thanks nimesh ! But I have been already gone through Wikipedia. Its just a few lines regarding Google Web Server. Where as I am looking details of GWS like supported SCRIPTs, Connections, encryptions etc various capability details.

    I was surprised to know that GWS is the Number 3 web server software in the survey of Netcraft ( the company who provide market-analysis regarding OS and Web Servers).

    That's why I want to know more about Google's web server software.

    What is the job of Google Web Server? If i'm not mistaken it is a server where all the google clients/site are being placed?
