Firefox 18

What's everyones thoughts on it with Retina Display?

Only disappointment/confusion for me is that flash stuff doesn't render for the retina display unlike Safari and Chrome?

They've sped up the release cycle. Firefox 19 came out while I was typing this.

What's up with the numbering..?!?

Are they trying to set the record for the highest release number for an app?

Are you sure? I am on the release channel update and it just went to 18 this morning. Nothing about 19.

Number parity with Google Chrome. Supposedly it wouldn't look good to be on Firefox 5 or 6 when Chrome is on version 22 or 23.

I can't see any changes between Firefox 17 and 18 in the online help. I must be blind.
