Mozilla today released version 18 of Firefox, adding Retina support for Apple’s line of Retina MacBook Pros.
Safari, Opera, and Google Chrome implemented Retina months ago, leaving Firefox as the last of the major browsers to receive a Retina update. Without Retina support, both website text and images on Firefox appeared fuzzy and hard to read.
Firefox 18 also includes the following updates, changes and fixes:
-Support for Retina Display on OS X 10.7 and up
-Preliminary support for WebRTC
-Experience better image quality with our new HTML scaling algorithm
-Performance improvements around tab switching
-Support for new DOM property window.devicePixelRatio
-Improvement in startup time through smart handling of signed extension certificates
-Support for W3C touch events implemented, taking the place of MozTouch events
-Disable insecure content loading on HTTPS pages
-Improved responsiveness for users on proxies
Firefox 18 can be downloaded from the Mozilla website.
