### A Very High Performance Objective-C JSON Library
+**UPDATE:** (2011/12/18) The benchmarks below were performed before Apples [`NSJSONSerialization`][NSJSONSerialization] was available (as of Mac OS X 10.7 and iOS 5). The obvious question is: Which is faster, [`NSJSONSerialization`][NSJSONSerialization] or JSONKit? According to [this site](http://www.bonto.ch/blog/2011/12/08/json-libraries-for-ios-comparison-updated/), JSONKit is faster than [`NSJSONSerialization`][NSJSONSerialization]. Some quick "back of the envelope" calculations using the numbers reported, JSONKit appears to be approximately 25% to 40% faster than [`NSJSONSerialization`][NSJSONSerialization], which is pretty significant.
