Google Real-time search is a fact!

The printing press changed the communication from one-to-one to one-to-many. The web brings it to many-to-many. Google has real-time search . We can make a strong point stating that Google has 11 years of experience with ranking based on relevance, not just based on sort-by-date. To get to real-time search, you’ll click the “Show options” link above the search results. Then you’ll see a “Latest” option.

Joomla and Drupal

What is their status?
