Chrome Canary vs Webkit Nightlies

Has anyone done any recent testing of the latest Canary build of Chrome vs the latest Webkit Nightly in terms of performance on a retina macbook pro? When I first got my 15" last November the webkit nightlies were the only way to get smooth scrolling on some websites. I haven't tried Chrome since and am wondering if the experience has improved at all.
