A long overdue return to technical stuff…
If you use Google Analytics and actually look at your visitor data, you will be familiar with this phenomenon, which is the reported Safari browser version in GA:
Those are in fact, not Safari version numbers, but WebKit version numbers. Now, you might just be saying, “oh, stop whining, you can just correlate those!”
But, in fact, you would be wrong: For example, the WebKit version 533.17.8 is used in both Safari 4.1 and 5.0.1. For my purposes, this is not the end of the world as I tend to care more about the WebKit version than the browser version.
However, I do occasionally need to explain these numbers to like… clients, in which case, the above sucks. And it’s been broken for awhile. People have posted up various filters and such that you can use to improve the situation, but seriously, that’s an epic waste of time, so I’m whining about it on teh interwebs.
