What would you like to do?
Daisy-Chaining setTimeout
// if we have
function do() {
// thing that takes 100ms - 2s depending on browser
}
// Instead of:
setInterval(do, 500) // pray it doesn't lock the browser
// Do this:
function doAndTick() {
do();
setTimeout(doAndTick, 100);
}
doAndTick();
// It will not run exactly every 500, but it guarantees 100ms of downtime for the browser
