User agent string has wrong WebKit version
The User Agent string in the latest 5.9.2 SneakyPeek ( has the same WebKit version listed as 5.9.1, even though it's now using the new Safari 4.0 WebKit. For example:

[CODE]Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; en-US) AppleWebKit/525.18 (KHTML, like Gecko, Safari/525.20) OmniWeb/v622.7.0.110031

...whereas the Safari 4.0 beta reports something like:

[CODE]Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10_5_6; en-au) AppleWebKit/528.16 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/4 Public Beta Safari/528.16

In other words, Safari 4.0 reports WebKit version 528.16, whereas OmniWeb 5.9.2 reports 525.18.

I know, not very significant; but I wanted to make sure it was reported so it wouldn't be forgotten!

Thanks to whoever fixed this -- the latest 5.9.2 SP (110241) now reports:
[CODE]Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; en-US) AppleWebKit/528.16 (KHTML, like Gecko, Safari/528.16) OmniWeb/v622.7.0.110241[/CODE]
