Internet & Networking With financial backing from the likes of Michael Dell and other venture capitalists, open source upstart Nginx has edged out Microsoft IIS (Internet Information Server) to hold the title of second-most widely used Web server among all active websites. What's more, according to Netcraft's January 2012 Web Server Survey, Nginx over the past month has gained market share among all websites, whereas competitors Apache, Microsoft, and Google each lost share.

I guess I am confused by that article. They referenced Google several times, but why? Do they provide a web server?

I was confused by that too, so I went "googling" for an answer. And found this:

Google mystery server runs 13% of active websites
And only Google runs its mystery server

I am sorry, I can't give you a source, so maybe my memory is wrong (and maybe someone finds it), but I think when reading or listening something related to Go (the programming language) they said that they now use a Go based server at least for parts of their infrastructure.
