Minimise “Forced reflow”


I spend some time tracking the performance of our app, which implements highcharts. I figured out, that some function like getBBox() do trigger “Forced reflow” quite often.

If you look at this list What forces layout / reflow, the things that trigger a reflow is very long.

My Question:

Are there alternative for at least some of the listed properties (espacially offsetWidth/offsetHeight), that do NOT trigger a reflow?
