Great Work. I am dumping FeedNormalizer, right now.

It offers a massive speed improvement. Interestingly this parser still runs four times slower on Ubuntu than on my Mac, which was the same as for Feed Normalizer.

I started looking for a better library because Feed Normalizer sucked on Ubuntu. This library matches the Mac speed for FN on Ubuntu, and runs very fast on the Mac.

Can someone point me as to why Ubuntu speed is so bad. I usually do not have a problem on that box. So I expect it is a library issue related to parsing.

Thanks for sharing this gem.

Wow, this looks fantastic. I'm thinking of all kinds of things that can utilize this.
