The video has something really interesting – right now, the DOM is in Webcore (which is all c++) part of the webkit. So when we access the DOM in JS Core, it leaves the JS VM to enter Webcore which does involve a cost.

With Blink, Google’s webkit fork, they plan to move Dom implementation to JS engine itself thereby staying within JS.
