One usually places a teaspoon into a glass when pouring hot water into it in order to avoid cracking the glass How does the spoon protect the glass form cracking?
The spoon cools the hot water slightly just before it hits the glass. It's just enough to keep the glass from cracking from localized thermal expansion. Thermal shock on the glass is reduced slightly and spread out over time. It would be similar to hitting the glass with a metal hammer versus a rubber mallet.

What kind of glass is a windshield made of?
Vehicular windshields are made of laminated auto glass. There is a polymer layer between the glass sheets that provides a "flexible strength" to the glass to keep it from breaking into large, sharp pieces. The advantages of this type of glass in a windshield are pretty obvious. Links can be found below to check facts and learn more.
