Hey, Will from Google's Open Source Office here.

I apologize for the confusion this caused; that was certainly not the intent. Mea culpa! The name "libcrurl" was just an internal working name for this effort that wasn't expected to gain much attention.

This project is still very experimental in nature (as discussed at https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=973603...), and there are no plans here to try and replace or compete with libcurl. We have huge respect for the tireless work Daniel does to maintain curl, and didn't mean to cause any confusion or extra work for him.

To make things clearer, the team is renaming the project, and adding some more docs outlining the goals and intent of the project: https://chromium-review.googlesource.com/c/chromium/src/+/16...
