correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't webdriver communicate with Chrome via the devtools protocol?

WebDriver is a protocol: https://www.w3.org/TR/webdriver/

yeah yeah yeah I'm sorry I mean Chrome webdriver, I think that was clear from context?

As in selenium -> webdriver protocol -> chrome webdriver -> devtools protocol -> chrome instance

it's called ChromeDriver and I kinda mentioned it originally — "There's probably a proxy or something" — and said that I want native fully integrated support :)

ah now I follow, my bad :)
