The latest Chrome release for Mac (20.0.1132.47) looks like it changed it's user agent string and is causing jQuery's $.browser.safari function is returning true.

I wouldn't count on this being the last time, you can use navigator.userAgent to directly sniff out whatever you think is a more accurate detection.

Can you provide the full user agent for your browser?

Yeah I've already figured out my own detection in the meantime, here's the user agent string the current Chrome build spits out:

Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_8_0) AppleWebKit/536.11 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/20.0.1132.47 Safari/536.11

This is because $.browser is unmaintained - to maintain is to encourage its use. Don't use it.
