Yes, but we seem to have had no other choice. WKWebView does not identify itself in any way, and we are framework developers, so we don't have any control over the embedding code. So there was no option to detect WKWebView other than rely on the availability of the APIs, which of course is subject to change. Hence my suggestion to make WKWebView identifiable to Javascript in some way.

So I guess we can try and convince WKWebView embedders to make it identifiable to our engine in some way - but some way of identifying WKWebView itself from Javascript seems like it would be more reliable.
