What are some examples of popular or mainstream applications that use ClickOnce as their deployment solution? (Go ahead and use your own definition of popular.)

MetroTwit, a fairly popular Twitter client, comes to mind, but I'm looking for some more examples.

@slhck This is not a subjective or open-ended question, an application is either using ClickOnce or it isn't. The problem to be solved is that I'm looking for applications that people might recognize so I can demonstrate the technology. –  Evan Wondrasek May 19 '11 at 15:35

I believe the Microsoft Visual Basic Express Editions use Clickonce for installation (or at least deployment/download, the installers themselves are still hideously complicated). They use something called the Microsoft Web Platform Installer which some sites indicate is a part of the ClickOnce family.

See here for a link to Microsoft's Web App Gallery which is based on the WebPI: http://www.microsoft.com/web/gallery/

To the editor: I post "undressed" links as a security habit, so people can see where they are being taken without having to search for the browser's status bar. Your other edits were unsubstantive. –  music2myear May 8 '13 at 17:18
