Recently, a member-only vote
<http://www.w3.org/2002/09/wbs/38482/selectorsNames/results>  was held
to attempt (yet-again) to resolve general complaining, grumbling, etc.,
about the latest API names chosen for the Selectors API spec
<http://dev.w3.org/cvsweb/~checkout~/2006/webapi/selectors-api/Overview.
html?content-type=text/html;%20charset=utf-8> . I suppose a vote was the
only fair and equitable thing to do. The race was pretty close, given
the total votes, and a new name candidate rose to the top. I suppose
this thread is now open to hear what the standardistas think, but
personally, I'd like to just put the voted name in, and get this spec
done ;)

So,

querySelector/querySelectorAll it is. Now I'll certainly have to learn
to spell 'query' correctly...

 

Thanks to Lachlan for correcting my previously erroneous math.
