Mozilla has announced that a new Firefox Beta for Windows, Mac, and Linux is available for download and testing.

● IonMonkey: IonMonkey is a new JavaScript JIT compiler that provides a more efficient way for Firefox to process JavaScript. With IonMonkey, Firefox will perform faster with Web apps, games and other JavaScript-heavy pages.

● Retina Display Support: Firefox Beta supports Retina Display for Mac users to make Firefox even sharper when watching movies, playing games and browsing the Web.

● Disable Insecure Content: Firefox Beta can disable insecure content on HTTPS secure websites to maintain the privacy of your communication with the website. You can enable the feature in about:config.

each icons, the skin, etc embedded in the app to appear on teh screen was of low dpi (dots per inch). Since its lower than the one on the retina macbook (220dpi) it shows pixelated.
