    Anyone do this update yet on the 13" retina? I'm interested to see if there are performance improvements in native Safari. The release notes seem to indicate that. I'm downloading it now from the train so its going to take a while. 567 MB. There goes my data plan this month. :(

    Yes. Safari seems much smoother. Maybe even non-retina Mac smooth. Even more noticeable in the App Store which went from a slideshow to decent.

    Haven't really noticed anything yet. Updated my 2010 iMac, too.

    Safari is not fixed on my 13" rMBP. Hell, it might be worse. :(

    I never had a problem to begin with... It's the same for me, but either my early 2013 i7 3.0 magically doesnt have this issues or i dont know..

    Works great for me, no issues at all.

    Interesting. I notice some improvements compared to 10.8.2, mostly when scrolling through sites like the Verge.

    That's the primary site I use for testing.

    Go to the Verge. Select a couple random articles. Double tap to zoom the text on each one. Then try to scroll. And please report back.

    Do you have a non-Retina Mac? The Verge is a very complicated site and lags when scrolling on my iMac using Chrome or FireFox. Any site that lags on the Retina logs on a regular Mac as well.

    Fixed for me. About the same performance as Webkit.

    Now let's talk about Mail and Itunes ;)

    Yes, some improvement, but Webkit is still even faster/smoother, so I'm using that (and it's stable too).

    I have a 13" rMBP. Previously a 2012 13" MBA and I honestly do not remember this type of scroll lag.

    Updated mine last night but haven't had much chance to try it out. never really noticed much in the way of lag in Safari but then I usually use the iPad for surfing.
    The lag when first showing the dock or first time opening launchpad is improved although I wouldn't say perfect yet. This only ever happened on the first time they were opened though, subsequent launches were buttery smooth so I believe this is purely a caching issue and the new retina icons (4x size) not loading up as quick.

    updated mine as well last night (13 rMBP)and saw little improvements. What made the biggest difference for me was by installing the adblock extension on safari.

    for reference, check out: http://macdailynews.com/

    with the ad on disabled and abled.. huge difference
