I agree here. I actually opened this bug more to start a discussion on the proper priorities to use for the various timers/sources as we had some issues with JS being starved and thus breaking some webapps that relied on setTimeout calls. This issue only happened in a very specific usecase where we had a browser running in a VM with limited resources.

I vote for reverting this but would like to see your opinion on what is the best approach to solve the issue with JS being starved when running on limited resources.
