<title>Well-Known Users Of SQLite</title>

<h2>Well-Known Users of SQLite:</h2>

<p>
A few of the better-known users of SQLite are shown below
in alphabetical order.
There is no complete list of projects and companies
that use SQLite.
SQLite is in the 
<a href="copyright.html">public domain</a> and so many groups use SQLite
in their projects without ever telling us.

</td><td>
We believe that [http://www.ge.com/ | General Electric]
uses SQLite in some product or 
another because they twice wrote to the SQLite developers requesting 
the US Export Control Number for SQLite. So presumably GE is using
SQLite in something that they are exporting. But nobody
(outside of GE) seems to know what that might be.

in the [http://code.google.com/android/ | Android] cell-phone 
operating system, and in the 
[http://www.google.com/chrome | Chrome Web Browser].
People are suspicious that Google uses SQLite for lots of other things
that we do not know about yet.
Engineers at Google have made extensive contributions to the
full-text search subsystem within SQLite.

It can be inferred from

that at least one group within

is using SQLite in the development of a 
game program. No word yet if this game has actually been released or
if they are still using SQLite.

particularly well with Tcl since SQLite was originally a Tcl extension that

A representative of

that Toshiba is exporting something from the US that uses SQLite, but we 
do not know what that something is.
