Credit where credit is due

With all the talk about Google Chrome, the rendering engine WebKit is being mentioned, and always with the "also used by the Safari browser by Apple"-badge tacked on.

Didn't WebKit originate in KHTML, of Konqueror browser fame, by the KDE people? Why is nobody crediting the people/project that created the foundation of WebKit in the first place?

Maybe this is like Richard Stallman yelling "GNU/Linux DAMMIT!", but... wouldn't it be kind of fair to mention the origin and not just the largest benefactee, just once in a while?

Maybe that is tracing back too much history.

Add comment?
