I like this new tag jank... i googled it and I see that's actually a 'thing'. I do find jank annoying.

Yea me too! The new retina MacBooks experience a lot more jank.... Comparable to a netbook I think lol. Box-shadow and gradients seem to be really expensive. Also The new canary builds have a fps meter option.. Really handy

Pineapple seems to be almost always a buttery 16ms/60fps thumbs up
