I am not discussing JavaScript, the Chrome team has put a massive 
effort into improving the bad situation with dropped frames over 
the past years for good reason. Their GC is in a different 
ballpark than D.

Consistency is king, 30hz without dropped frames is perceived as 
more fluid than 60hz with dropped frames. A sidescroller with 
fixed speed looks like a trainwreck if you get dropped frames.
