Lots of nonsense here. Google routinely generates new ssl certificates with low TTLs. Anycast DNS will yield changing IP addresses over time and also between networks. Netscape-remote sounds like something that hails back to the Netscape 4.x era where, I believe, there was a command line argument to open a web page in an existing browser session by specifying -remote and the URL. 1e100(.net) is the value for a "googol" and it's pretty well known to be used in google's reverse DNS. And I can totally see sha1 still in use to maximize browser support, especially for a web page that is likely set as browser homepage on millions of outdated computers and android 2.x era phones. Anyways, don't use reverse DNS to try to determine IP ownership - looking up the netblock owners in WHOIS is much better.
