It’s the same thing, exept webkit is updated a few times a day. Safari uses an old version of webkit. Most users wont notice any difference tho

One way to really tell the difference is take the Acid Test
I tried it between Firefox, Safari, And Webkit. Webkit is the only browser to reach 100!

Webkit is the HTML rendering engine, Safari is the web browser which needs webkit to work. They have to be both installed in order to work. Webkit by its own cant do anything interesting really, it needs of a browser or a interface to display useful information.
