Prototype adds a extra parameter &_= to every GET Ajax.Request done by
any WebKit browser. This is done to fix a bug in an old version of

I'd like to see this feature removed for these reasons:

- That version is of Safari is not used any more. (which version was it anyway?)
- It breaks my server side code
- It is not the same for different browsers which makes it harder to test for
- It is not documented

Other solutions could be:

- Document it
- Do a version check for the specific version of Safari and run it
only for that browser
- if its considered harmless it should be enabled for all browsers

I solve it by patching my version of prototype.
