Safari 6 Macbook Pro Retina Mountain Lion Problems

Stuttering, flashing, missing page parts, delayed typing/keyboard reaction, character corruption are Safari problems (Safari version 6) seen under Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8) on Macbook Pro Retina.  The current Safari 6 version 8536.25 (check in the menu bar by clicking Safari –> About Safari) seems to only have serious issues on Macbook Pro Retina, not on other Macbook’s like the Macbook Air.
