Why would you like to have both? It is meaningless since both libraries have the same purpose.

Can you drive two cars simultaneously? :)

But:

- Glee has not been updated since February 2009 and supports just OpenGL 3.0, while

- GLEW has got much better support (updated April 2011 and supports OpenGL 4.1).

I'm not using either of them, but if I should choose between them, I would choose GLEW.

What OpenGL Version do you use?
GLew is known to produce warnings and errors on OpenGL 3.x+ because it still uses glGetString to determine extensions. THe author has gotten several patches from people, but somehow he does not manage to update it properly.
If you use OpenGL3, then there is GL3w, esp. designed for OpenGL3. It requires Python 2.6 for the setup though, but creates one .c file and 2 headers which can easily be included into your app:

He gets compilation errors, not runtime GL error. http://www.opengl.org/wiki/Extension_Loading_Library

He gets compilation errors because he has GLEE and GLEW.
