The point of the article is to give everyone more information about the development of this new web browser from the developer's standpoint. Many people had questions about this browser. So by asking the developer, they were hopefully answered.

I'm not sure what your talking about "already christened". We are however excited, but I don't know what would be wrong with that?

By "already christened" I meant the the 1st few questions were on the thoughts behind the name (which was what struck me most odd) rather than about the software itself.

Perhaps I'm old fashioned or maybe just illiterate, but I've never really cared what the name of the software I use is called. However if others do then I'll happily just admit that I'm weird. ;-)

Oh, I see. The reason the name questions were at the top was Robert had been asking for name suggestions on his blog: http://cataclysm.cx/2007/11/11/tastes-like-chicken/

So he wanted to first announce the name at the top so people would know what name he decided on. So that probably caused the confusion. ;)
