How we built it

Passive event listeners

Expose "passive" boolean in the EventListenerOptions dictionary. Implement the behaviour with respect to dispatching passive EventListeners so that calling preventDefault inside executing the passive registered callback only generates a warning to the console. Can be used to dramatically improve scrolling performance.
