    Google webkit, and download the nightly build mac version for it. It's basically an updated webkit that safari uses. The browser is Safari, except it's an unofficial version. Works perfectly and the scrolling is too smooth to be true. Facebook is now scrolling even better than on a CMBP. You're welcome guys!

    Yes the Safari nightly webkit is incredibly fast when scrolling, facebook and theverge are buttery fast even when using the integrated intel HD4000, I haven't tested Google webkit I will give it a try, thanks.

    By the way any hint on ML 10.8.3 release date???

    Holy Dogpoo Batman!!! :eek:

    I didn't realise I had a scrolling issue until a moment ago, when I scrolled down Facebook, installed WebKit kit and scrolled Facebook again!

    Can I just replace the Safari app with WebKit.app?

    When I use WebKit.app, I get a warning saying "SafariForWebKitDevelopment wants to use your confidential information stored in "Safari Forms AutoFill" in your keychain. Do you want to allow access to this item?"

    Is it safe to select "Allow" or "Always Allow", or am I giving away all my passwords, banking details and the secret to Life, The Universe and Everything?

    Yes, open Safari and choose Preferences and make Webkit your default browser.

    Yes, it is safe to pick Always allow. It is just wanting access to the passwords in keychain Safari had access to.

    I think he meant 'Google' as in the verb, then 'Webkit'.

    There is no Google WebKit, Google's Test Builds are called Chrome Canary.

    Both Firefox and Chrome although they are retina ready apps they're not retina optimised.
