Supported Browsers out of sync with jQuery core

Should our supported browsers be in sync with jQuery core? vs.

Specifically, can we support Safari 3.1+ when core supports Current - 1 and the same goes for Opera where we say we support 9.6+ but core only supports Current - 1.

I'm working on removal of $.browser where possible but found this inconsistency making it hard to know if I can remove some of them.

Yeah, we're supposed to be in-sync with core. However, we're kind of in a time warp in relation to core. In a way, we're in sync with core from three years ago when 1.3.2 was released (the oldest version of core that we support). The list of browsers is correct as of that time. We should probably just update the list to match core, since we'll never tell someone to downgrade jQuery in order to get older browser support, while we may tell someone to upgrade jQuery in order to fix a bug.

The new site doesn't mention browser support, so we're no longer out of sync with core :-P
