For the purpose of discussion webkit and safari (and epiphany, and  
arora, ...) are synonymous -- chrome represents the only version of  
webkit using a unique JS engine.  I think for that reason it's better  
to distinguish based on JS engine rather the browser: SpiderMonkey,  
JavaScriptCore, V8, and JScript all support JSON natively nowadays --  
unsure about any opera betas atm, nor what the JS engine in O is named,

That said, the Safari 4 branch of webkit (which i believe is used as  
the stable branch for WebKit/qt as well) has a bug where it provides  
the global object rather than the holder object as the `this` argument  
to the replacer function.
