Interesting, when I play live chess, I do play the very common default 2+12 time controls mostly - which is according to : FIDE handbook still blitz since its 2+60*12/60=14 minutes which is under 15 min. So yes, speed chess is the most common chess then. Section F (Miscellaneous) of this handbook actually contains rules for Chess960!
