Google use Windows For Docs & Linux For Spreadsheets

December 10, 2006

In The Name Of Allah

I think Google use Windows for thier Google Doc’s because

the url is not case sensitive

This is a sample of word “Writly” link

http://docs.google.com/Doc?id=2c79n2g

If us change it to

http://docs.google.com/doc?id=2c79n2g

It still works

on the contrary

This is a asample link for spreadsheet

http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=51694

If u change it to http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccC?key=51694

It won’t Work and will give you

Not Found

Error 404

But google integrate the two products well

All Of us know that FireFox is more secure than IE
