Purge remaining ENABLE(SHADOW_DOM) cruft.
<​https://webkit.org/b/128827>

Source/WebCore:

with goals for intent to ship 60fps on mobile in 2014.

I'm so damn glad they are doing this.

Shadow DOM: http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/WD-shadow-dom-20120522/

 

Moving it to a modules implementation where it doesn't compromise page size and performance is finally being addressed. They state it's costing 5% of overall page load time just to manage these sub trees.

 

Mobile hitting 60fps is just added sauce of performance on the desktop/laptop space.

 

Both Chrome and Safari branches of their respective WebKits are dealing with it, but I definitely prefer Apple's solution.

Is Apple that protective of its changes to WebKit itself?

Don't know, simply my attempt at tongue in cheek humour. And yes, I don't think they'd mind their employees posting stuff like this.
