I have been using HiDpi for the last 2 years.

Yes, the Epiphany / WebKitGTK+ combo definitely supports HiDpi. It has been that way ever since I first tried them on such hardware.

Things have recently improved in Firefox. Recent versions of Fedora build Firefox with GTK+ 3.x and those have HiDpi support out of the box.

However, this wasn't always the case. Back when I first started using HiDpi things would show up really tiny in both Firefox and Chrome. As Michael says, the former had some about:config setting that could be tweaked to address this, but I am not aware of any such knob in Chrome.
