Because someone wanting 2.2GB/s JSON parsing is deploying to a chromebook...

It doesn't seem that laughable to me to want faster JSON parsing on a Chromebook, given how heavily JSON is used to communicate between webservers and client-side Javascript.

"Faster" meaning faster than Chromebooks do now; 2.2 GB/s may simply be unachievable hardware-wise with these cheap processors. They're kinda slow, so any speed increase would be welcome.
