So I decided to test how fast the plugin is, when feeding it a couple of thousand items (5726 to be exact, pretty much all of them are unique) from the select element. Turns out it essentially hangs the browser.

On a modern Core i7, using Firefox's moderately fast javascript engine, using this plugin (which is meant for large amounts of items, hence the search box), this should not take more than a second or so.

I can understand why it would be slow, but this slow? It's been crunching for a good two minutes and it's finally done. This needs some serious optimization.

Same issue with ~500 items.

#512 and #522 attempt to solve this. Making Chosen faster is a priority.
