I just wanted to say that by improving layout speed in NGLayout doesn't only mean that your pages load quicker.

It's going to open up a whole new class of applications which use the browser as their frontend. We are going to see some very powerful stuff which is enabled only by the efficiency of NGLayout, simply because it knows what it does and does not need to redraw.

Making documents which can alter themselves is very powerful.
