Did a simple test with 819kb json file:
- JSON Library / LCB 5400 ms
- PhotonJSON / LCS 400 ms
- mergJSON / extension 250 ms

I tried to import the smartcrumbs output with the external, LCB and LCS and only the LCS even was successful (probably due to the MD5 hashes).

I’d imagine quite a bit of the speed of the new widgets over DG is going to be along these lines.  LC Mark would be the one to speak to speed differences between LCB and LCS though.
