Thanx for quick response.
This is a good start.
Agreed:
"No universal "best" hash function"
"Minimize collisions"
"lots of discussions on "best hash function", etc
"What is nature of the data to be hashed?", etc

However, I suspect that
google uses proprietary hashing techniques
caching searches for future searches, "who knows",
collision mitigation,
daisy chaining (nested hash tables, etc. my terminology)
I suspect this subject maybe a lot deeper than the search for the standard "best hash function".
hence my proposal for a discussion. It may come to nothing, but it's out there.
