Khan Academy has published the fastest typesetting library for the web. IntMath’s KaTeX and MathJax comparison demo shows some impressive performance improvements. The demo page took 177 ms to process on my laptop. The MathJax version on the other hand took 4777 ms. The performance comes at a price that not everything is supported in KaTeX (yet). I wish aligned equations were supported, but I can live with it. Until I run across more serious problems I’ll happily use KaTeX instead of MathJax.
