                <h1>Webkit style recalc bug</h1>
<p>Webkit seems to have a nasty bug that causes <strong>MAJOR</strong> slowdowns if you merely read a property from the calculated style after setting an inline value on a completely different element altogether, even of the property doesn't affect document flow at all (<code>WebkitTransform</code> in this case). It forces a style recalc but it really shouldn't. Or am I missing something? 
  When you click "run test" below, we'll loop through all the letters, <code>getCalculatedStyle()</code> on each one, and then set the <code>style.WebkitTransform</code> to a random offset. Watch how much longer it takes if you select "Read transform before setting"! I know it'll go faster if all of the reading happens first, and then all of the setting, but that shouldn't be necessary.</p>
<label style="color:red"><input type="checkbox" id="read" /> Read transform before setting</label><br> <button>RUN TEST</button>
