WebKit does render incrementally, although normally pending scripts  
block parsing and pending stylesheets block layout and painting until  
a significant timeout has passed, to prevent showing incorrect content.

I'm not sure what you mean by "better performance" but in general,  
rendering more often will make the total page load take longer,  
although it may be able to render for the first time sooner.
