Hi Adam

Thanks for your help. If I got that right, 38725 would correspond to  
Safari 3.2.1 (http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/38725). Using the  
'official' detection script with 38707 (the last version before the  
non-existing 38725) I'm told "Your WebKit version number is 528.5".  
But according to Wikipedia this would be Safari 4. Am I doing  
something wrong?
