sites with an open search description

I'm looking to see how many sites are still implementing an Open Search description document. This piece of technology was all the rage a couple years ago but seems to be on the decline as of late. This grep looks for the link element used to declare the opensearch document. The document query you'd use for this element is this: "link[rel='search'][type='application/opensearchdescription+xml']"



grep pattern Number of Urls Number of Domains
rel=search 440,439 1,454
rel='search' 8,056,904 2,054
rel="search" 316,236,219 1,074,678

List of top 100 domains in rank order:
