Change Safari's User Agent to Google Chrome
Authored by: e_whizz on Mar 24, '11 03:16:30AM

Interesting, is this deliberate sabotage by google, to make their browser seem better?

Technically it does not 'make safari quicker', but potentially Google are sending Chrome optimised javascript etc to the browser they now think is Chrome. If this works flawlessly and faster in Safari, masquerading as Chrome, then that is what they should be sending a Safari user agent aswell.

Google may also be sending extra code to work around bugs in Safari, or to cater for older versions of Safari (where they don't have specific code branches for each version of Safari).
