Looking at latest launch of skype web working only on chrome and edge and this comment I think we should start labeling these developers as "Chrome Developers" rather than Web Developers

@karambir I really appreciate folks making comments like "why should we have to test on every browser" when they actually mean "why should I test on anything but Chrome" so I know to never accidentally let them get hired at any company I work for.

@freakazoid Me too. I give some concession to freshers(straight out of the college) as they don't really understand a lot cool things they use are there because few are fighting for them.

@karambir exactly. Same with android app developers vs Google android app devs.

@prashere Well, google has engulfed android so much its not open in many ways. Atleast for normal applicaton-level developers. The play-services especially around gcm/fcm and maps 😣
