We use every opportunity to tell users that it is the same thing, but this is not enough. The first question we always get is "Do you guys upstream any of your Chrome Dev Tools code into the WebKit?". Which sounds crazy, because 100% of the code is upstream. So it is probably just me trying to use both names to fix this. It sounds like I should be more formal in this case and make the letter of the post conform to its WebKit spirit.

There is nothing easier than posting this whole thing at chromium.org, but it will harm the "unified WebKit Remote Debugging Protocol" message we are trying to deliver.

Back in the day, we named it after Hyatt's old blog. At this point, it might be that no one remembers it or gets the reference. Does anyone have any clever references involving "WebKit"?


P.S. In posts we do try to avoid mentioning Safari or other specific browsers.
