How can I downgrade Safari 6 to 5 in Mountain Lion? [Resolved]

Is it possible to downgrade Safari 6 to 5 in Mountain Lion? I tried to install 5.1.7 but it says it only works with OS X 10.7.

Is there any workaround I can try?

No, you can't go back with Safari on Mountain Lion.

Sorry this answer is for downgrading Safari 6 in Lion only

Yes you can go back to Safari 5.1.7 from Safari 6. I found the uninstaller on this site. Third from the top is Safari 6 - Lion uninstaller, click this to download, run it, reboot and Safari 5.1.7 will (surprisingly) reappear, I have just done it, no problems though YMMV.
