Here is an export from GA for my website's browser traffic: Browser and OS.....Visits Internet Explorer / Windows.....2031 Firefox / Windows.....1225 Safari / Macintosh.....434 Chrome / Windows.....425 Firefox / Macintosh.....192 Safari / iPhone.....98 Safari / Android.....59 Safari / iPad.....55 Chrome / Macintosh.....50 Firefox / Linux.....36
Now I want to see how each of those browsers render my website so I use [browsershots.org...] which shows a large list of different browsers.
Problem is, the matchings are not apparent. For example, I don't know a) which version of Safari is native to iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 b) which browser+OS+version is installed on Blackberry etc.
I only have one answer: Safari Android (as shown at GA and above list) is Linux -> Safari 533.3 (as shown at browsershots.org). (I looked on my Evo!)

One thing, just so you know: I put GA on a mobile app, with all of our traffic being reported from phones. Safari / Android was the highest referrer. I could be wrong, but frankly I doubt we got only mobile traffic except for a bunch of people using Safari on a Linux machine.
I'm of the opinion that GA calls Andoid's browser "Safari" because it doesn't know what else to call it.

no no. Once again "I looked on my Evo" in the system info and the browser version is exactly "Safari/533.1". Next, Android at its core is Linux. Finally, Android has surpassed iPhone as the most popular phone OS.

Sorry I'm not making myself clear. Which box on [browsershots.org...] do I check for each of the most common Blackberries, each iPhone, the iPad, Nokia, Windows 7 mobile, Palm, and any others you can think of? Which box on [browsershots.org...] do I check for the built-in browser that ships with most of today's and last years' new Macs?
