I know there's an option in Safari that lets it seem like you're using Internet Explorer (see here). But I am curious as to how this browser is then tracked by Google Analytics- so for example, if I am looking at sessions across browsers, would this show up under Safari or Internet Explorer?

I tried to find something in the Google analytics documentation that might answer this, but couldn't.

Edit: It seems that this method doesn't really let Safari emulate IE, rather it just tells the site that's being visited that the browser is IE and not Safari: http://www.davidalison.com/2008/05/how-to-let-safari-pretend-its-ie.html

In this case, I think Google Analytics would record the sessions as IE sessions, but I'd be interested to hear if anyone can contradict this conclusion.
