So, what's the bottleneck?

Raw processing power?

Data communication between backend and frontend slow?

Inefficient data structures?

Many tests show that the JS engine itself is very fast and on par with C 
code, so blanket statements are not helpful.

When Mozilla started, there was no way to write an application frontend 
in JavaScript. It was way way too slow. Still, Mozilla made it happen.

Today, most webapps are incredibly slow. But they are slow, because the 
developers are loading MB large JS libraries to do some animations. Of 
course that has to be slow.

Without identifying the exact cause of a performance problem, you can't 
fix it.
