"Whereas the performance of a key derivation function like PBKDF2 in CryptoJS clocked in at around 5,000 hashes in 6 seconds, my simple WebCrypto tests had no problem running 1.5 million hashes in less than a second. This is the crypto library that the world of web apps have been so desperately awaiting."

Wait, aren't fast hashing algorithms problematic? Does that not make it easier to brute force the encryption? Is this algorithm asymmetric? How many hashes can you check in one second?
