I'm inclined to agree that it seems incorrect to fire onload after  
the first render (esp. given we run onloads prior to render in  
ordinary pages... it makes me kind of curious as to why we're firing  
onload late :-/)

Safari is only released for Mac and Windows, however there are  
healthy GTK and Qt ports of WebKit going at the moment.  I know  
WebKit/Qt at least is in Debian unstable, not sure about WebKit/GTK.   
And of course you can always pull the sources from http://webkit.org,  
but that can take a while.
