I think it used to, but am not sure if it still does. (does Chrome use WinInet.DLL on Windows?) Does anyone know, definitively, and if it doesn't use it anymore, which version did it change on? I'm on a conf call trying to troubleshoot connectivity with an app that uses WinInet. Connectivity test (painting the WSDL) works with Chrome but not IE. Thanks!

Chrome does not use WinInet. I just attached the debugger to chrome.exe and no wininet.dll in the loaded modules.
