Rename the Annotate button to Blame

Issue #16759 new

The blame button was renamed to annotate at some point.

This causes confusion considering the recognised term is actually blame especially as the command you ultimately run is git blame.

Could we please think about renaming it?

    Even as a native English speaker, I’d never have considered clicking a button labelled “Annotate” to switch to a different view. “Annotate” is a verb, so having it as a button label suggests that clicking the button will perform that action.

    At the very least, it should be re-labelled to “Annotated View”... even “Annotated” would be an improvement.
