I was reading an article written by Felix Bembrick where he took a Chrome canvas example and ported it to Nashorn with JavaFX. I ran the two tests myself and was surprised to see that Nashorn + FX ran at 350fps where Chrome ran at 120fps (iMac, 3.4 GHz Intel Core i7, AMD Radeon HD 6970M 2048M.) Much of the credit for that is JavaFX's rendering engine, but Nashorn allowed Felix to leverage that. The original article is at JavaFX with Nashorn Canvas example.
