    Angry why do all browser lag for this given loop?

    var a,b;
    while (a!==b){
    if (a>b) {
    var a=a-b;
    else {
    var b=b-a;

    so you enter numbers for a and b, and while the condition is true it is doing the given calculations and finally the a and b will became the same and the condition for WHILE will be false and after that it gives out a number a or b (doesnt matter cus both are equal already), also it works for some numbers but browser lags for some specific numbers for example if a=60 and b=120, i dont understand why by the way the given function calculates the largest common divisor of two given numbers, please help me and tell why is it lagging

    tested your version in ff, works fine. a slightly more improved version
    var a = 60,
    	b = 120;
    while(a !== b){
    	if(a > b){
    		a -= b; // same as "a = a - b"
    		b -= a;
    //alert(a +' '+ b);
