    Cooperative multitasking as in windows 95/98 era?
    Cooperative multitasking works very well when each task has a good understanding of the lifecycle of the others. In this case there are only two tasks and they're pretty simple.

    All multitasking in a JavaScript runtime is cooperative, and it works okay for a single application.

      Not if you use workers. Workers are separate threads, but yes, if you don't use them all events in JavaScript are handled on the same thread.

        All JavaScript applications are single-threaded (excluding Web Workers of course).

            Windows 3.1 had cooperative multitasking.
            Knowing that Google has a habit of doing the right thing, this is probably some localized usage, aimed at optimizing the use of resources. Of course, I don't know that for sure.
