I have not that problem with safari though.
I know it's canary and it might just be a bug in the browser, but better safe than sorry.

    Don't see that here. Looks like a JS bug in your browser to me. Seeing as this is the Chrome beta channel, I'd say that breakage like this is the browser's fault, not SO. Mar 13 '13 at 11:26

    The actual problem here is that Tim Stones reputation reached "1470569069" and so was easier to represent in base-36. Mar 13 '13 at 11:40
  • I'm using Chrome, just double checked to confirm that there wasn't an update that I missed. I still don't see that user's reputation displaying as an object though. Mar 13 '13 at 11:44
  • This is fantastically hilarious, I'm not sure how I missed this post before. Incidentally, I cannot reproduce this on myself in Chrome dev.

SE does not support beta browsers, if this is not reproducible in the latest stable version of Chrome it won't be fixed. It makes no sense for SE to work around bugs in unstable versions that might not be present in the final release.
