Google web Browser Chrome uses some Microsoft Code


Scott Hanselman, a senior programming manager for Microsoft, found that Googles new ‘open source’ browser uses a chunk of Microsoft code. Google also apparently used an undocumented interface from Microsoft to get the feature working in Windows XP SP2.

Microsoft’s Arun Kishan said the interface is “undocumented and unsupported” and “initially only intended for our own use” on a Microsoft forum posting.

Google said it disassembled the source code of Windows Vista to get the code working.
