      Some compilers will allow statics to be inlined, but then incorrectly create multiple instances of the inlined variable at run-time.
    • 2010, Michael Bolin, Closure: The Definitive Guide:
      Because functions that contain references to this cannot be inlined, the Compiler's ability to devirtualize prototype methods is even more important in terms of reducing the size of compiled code. By devirtualizing methods and removing references to this, more methods become functions that are candidates for inlining.
