Google announced the tool will be renamed to Google Search Console as to not limit the audience to webmasters.
Google said the tool is not just for webmasters but also used by hobbyists, small business owners, SEO experts, marketers, programmers, designers, app developers, and, of course, webmasters as well. So they didn’t want the name to limit the reach.
They also made a short URL named http://g.co/SearchConsole but the end point URL still goes to google.com/webmasters. Not sure if that will change.
