Back in July 2007, I brought up that Google Maps appears to be checking for
Safari and going down a code path that is different from other WebKit based
applications like OmniWeb or Dashboard. The bug we are seeing because of this
happens when you drag a map around very quickly and the tiles stop updating and
just stay gray. Looking at them in the Web Inspector I see that the img
elements are not being updated to point to the correct map tile image, but stay
pointing at

What is the issue being worked-around here that you had to special case Safari?
Is there a WebKit bug filed about it?

The Safari Google Maps behavior is obviously correct and we would like Google
to not check for "Safari" in the user agent string, but instead check for
"AppleWebKit". Then users of other WebKit based applications will get the same
experience as Safari.

I am not sure if this is what you are seeing or what.
