I agree that its important to not confuse users and make clearer that
the results are for the WebKitGTK port.

On one hand the name would be WebKitGTK and the platform Linux, and on
the other hand it would have on the smaller icon at the left a Tux (the
classic Linux penguin).

See this example of how it would look (without logo still):


However, I agree that still can be confusing if we use the WebKit logo
as is. So, let's discard doing that.

But, I wonder if it would be OK to use a variation of the WebKit logo
with some clearly visible modifications like different colors.

For example: https://cloud.igalia.com/index.php/s/y4xrKBYBY8t643D
(Its the WebKit logo but with the GTK colors)

Would be using this variation of the logo OK?
