(From update of attachment 64328)
I hesitate to get involved because people have strong feels here, but this patch at the wrong layer.  If an embedder of gtk-webkit wants to spoof someone else's UA string, that seems like something that should be handled by the embedder.  For example, when Chrome has spoofed a UA in the past, it's beed done at the embedding layer.

We'd probably all be better off if everyone set their UA string to "WebBrowser", but I don't think we're going to get there from here.  Why not spoof Safari's UA string to every site?  That's likely to give you the best compatibility, in all honesty.  Sorry.  :(
