How alerts look is determined by Safari, and not WebKit. So, we in the open
source WebKit project cannot change it. Please file bugs to
<http://bugreport.apple.com> for Apple engineers to take a look (free
registration required). Please file each issue as a separate report to maximize
the chances of it being investigated properly.

Having said that, I've got a few personal comments about your suggestions:

This is a platform convention on Mac OS X (Firefox does the same there). It
definitely has some good reasons behind it, so one needs equally good reasons
to dispute it. Of course, Mac OS X platform conventions do not necessarily
apply to Windows applications, so it's a valid request to follow Windows UI

> alert("Message comes here as normal","Title comes here");

AFAIK, browsers do not support that for security reasons. I haven't ever deeply
researched this, though, so I don't know the details.
