de facto standard
Last modified: Thursday, April 17, 1997 

A format, language, or protocol that has become a standard not because it has been approved by a standards organization but because it is widely used and recognized by the industry as being standard. Some examples of de facto standards include:
  • Hayes command set for controlling modems
  • Xmodem Communications Protocol
  • PostScript page description language for laser printers
  • E-mail this definition to a colleague
