Interestingly, I didn't say it made fast computers slow, I said it made fast computers <i>seem</i> slow, which is quite a different statement. I also didn't say that javascript was to blame, more likely it was javascript developers who were to blame. But the correlation is not encouraging.

Not sure how you see the correlation. Why pick javascript and not the compositing? Or maybe gtk+3.x, dconf, etc?

In practice the slowness is often combination of compositing and drivers btw (aside from just outright gnome-shell bugs :P). Use gnome-shell on another system or with another driver and you'll see a huge difference.
