Reflow vs. Repaint
Repaint has to do with the rerendering of an element on the page where it doesn’t not effect the layout. So if you change the background color or border. Reflow changes the layout. So if you changes the size of an element, modify class attributes, inline style attributes. This one is more costly because it causes a whole lot of other elements to be rerendered.
