            Bug ID: 261712
           Summary: Add https://searchfox.org/wubkat/source/ “Search the
                    WebKit sources” link somewhere
           Product: WebKit
           Version: WebKit Nightly Build
          Hardware: Unspecified
                OS: Unspecified
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebKit Website
          Assignee: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org

https://searchfox.org/wubkat/source/ is a great search tool known and used by a lot of WebKit contributors — but not well-known or used much be anyone outside the project. There are times when others outside the project — in particular, other implementors — want to search through the WebKit sources. For a concrete example, see the comment at https://github.com/whatwg/html/issues/3699#issuecomment-1724114438 where a Blink/Chrome implementor says, “I didn't see any equivalent code in Gecko or WebKit after a quick look, though I admit I don't have good source code search tools for WebKit so I'm definitely less sure there”.

Perhaps a “Sources” tab could be added to the top menu: Downloads | Feature Status | Documentation | Sources | Policies | Contribute | Blog

…where the Sources tab expands to show “Sources in GitHub” (https://github.com/WebKit/WebKit/) and “Search the sources” (https://searchfox.org/wubkat/source/) links
