So Pingdom went through the effort of going through the stockpiles of data about Google and created this awesome illustration of what exactly is Google.

It is absolutely amusing that Google supports search in the fictional languages of Klingon and Bork! But something that is really overlooked by many internet users is just the sheer importance that Google has in our lives nowadays. A market share of 85.78% is a monopoly by any standard, and it technically has absolute control over how we discover the web. This is one of the things that are starting to emerge lately, and it seems that Google seems to be dabbling with the dark side lately.
