Function to get object type

Currently, there is no built in method to detect the type of object being used if it is created using a constructor. Using "typeof" on an object defined using "new Array()" yields "object" as a result without revealing what type of "object" you are working with. It would be useful to have a built-in function to determine the type of object.

Referring to the fiddle: http://jsfiddle.net/CheapSk8/3uUVT/, using the object constructor, you can determine the type of object passed in.
