Add iPad to the list of User Agents in Safari's Develop menu

This is guaranteed to invalidate Safari’s code signature which will lead to a number of mysterious problems, the most visible of which will be a failure to access usernames and passwords stored in the keychain. That’s going to be much more of an inconvenience than using the “Other…” menu item.

I have not run into an issue with usernames/passwords or any of the items in my Keychain while using this method. Sometimes, however, when viewing YouTube, the thumbnails will incorrectly appear on the left side instead of the right. This is when Safari's user agent is on "Default (Automatically Chosen)." This is the only oddity I have encountered. But, as I stated when I prefaced this hint, this will most likely cause code signing issues down the road. Seems to work just fine for now, anyhow.

Oh, and you can also add even stranger user agent strings, like I do for PS3 and Wii using the same method.

The weird thumbnail issue in YouTube is caused by some bug with YouTube's HTML5 opt-in program. It has nothing to do with the user agent mod that I posted. Here's a description of that issue on Google's help page: link: http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/youtube/thread?tid=5178a54118b15b04&hl=en
