Default PSA: Firefox 18 has Retina Support!

No more Nightly builds required for Retina support now!

Safari still seems more crisp to my eye. Much improved though, the non-retina version was horrible to read and look at.

It's the fonts.
Out of the box both Chrome and Safari did look better.

I always set it to use my font (typically Verdana) and set it to use ONLY my font. (not let site choose!)

Scrolling is smoother in FF compared to both for sure.

Both Chrome and Firefox lag when I scroll. I can't get past that on the rMBP. Chrome is better than Firefox, but neither works as well as Safari.

I hear the new WebKit can speed things up, but have not tried it.

Oh man, forcing the browser to always use Verdana would make some people I know stab their eyes out. There are so many beautiful web fonts that you're denying yourself...
