I don't see the harm in adding the second condition "element
instanceof String"
you could use :

if(element && element.constructor == String)

This works for both "foo" and new String("foo");

I find that it is faster than using typeOf.
I have made very JavaScript heavy applications and noticed that using
"typeOf value == 'Object'" and others is slow
compared to myObject.constructor, especially when called a few
thousand times.

Also I don't buy the "it hasn't been fixed since the beginning, so why
fix it now?" argument.
