Google’s Chrome browser uses the WTL for Windows

As pointed out in this post, Google's new Chrome browser uses the Windows Template Library (WTL) in its Windows version.

I've long been a fan of the WTL — I've written several programs in it, including Felix, Doc2Html, and Tag Assist — and it's great to see it getting some love.

In my opinion, the WTL is simply the best way to write Win32 programs in C++. MFC was written before Visual Studio really supported templates. One of the MFC team once said that the WTL is what they would have written if good template support had been available.
