Analog PHP’s str_replace in Javascript

Another analog of PHP’s function that obviously doesn’t work in Javascript is str_replace. Javascript has simple method of String object called “replace()”. Using of this method is very trivial:

var string = "another day on the Earth!";
string.replace('another', 'new');
alert(string);

There is one problem – this method replaces only first match it can find. To use ability of replacing many mathces see replace_all() function in javascript.
