Chrome Has a Slight Microsoft Flavor
Chrome may be based on Mozilla, Safari and a huge dose of Google code, but at
chunk is pure Microsoft
. Chrome uses the Windows Template Library (WTL),
a technology for running small programs that Redmond donated to the open source
community, according to Microsoft's Scott Hanselman.
Chrome authors also reportedly "disassembled part of the Windows kernel"
in order to make the browser more secure under XP.
