Plural 's' tag names seems to be the so-convention. I therefore suggest we change these tags:

[widget] ⇒ [widgets] Renaming (2,077 questions) to (527 q's) and making a synonym.
[task] ⇒ [tasks] Renaming (720 q's) to (235 q's) and making a synonym.
[condition] ⇒ [conditions] Renaming (457 q's) to (186 q's) and making a synonym. Updating as I find more things in need of attention.
[keyword] ⇒ [keywords] Renaming (283 q's) to (449 q's). Also requested here.
[tag: webkit.net] (27 q`s). Burn it. They should properly be tagged (3171 q's).

Plural 's' tag names seems to be the so-convention -- Even though, in all three of your examples, SOPedians make more use of the singular tag than the plural one. –  Robert Harvey Jun 19 '12 at 23:03
    
@Robert Harvey. My point beeing. There are 2 tags for the same thing. Since I see that (80-90% ? round numbers) of other tags make use of plural tags exclusively. Singular terms is (mostly) for well established concepts. So [redirect] [url] [preview]. Also for concept which commonly appear in singular [photo-gallery] [conflict] With looser concepts, it is definately more common, the exact why is perhaps a bit vague, another question, using plural names [books] [properties] [web-services]. Then again there are cases when I can see 2 cases justified [word] [words]. –  r4. Jun 19 '12 at 23:42
    
The right thing to do would to establish a canon page (my first language is not english) stackoverflow terms to distinguish which tags should be plural and which should be singular. (Until then we are living in an undefined limbo). –  r4. Jun 19 '12 at 23:49
