It looks like there is a much faster competitor to MathJax, called KaTeX that was recently released. I know that for some of my longer answers (here and here), edits require a refresh to properly display. Additionally, it can take some time to actually compile/display.

Is cs.stackexchange tied to MathJax or is it possible to switch?

Not that we must switch. I'll admit that this isn't necessarily a massive issue, but it is nice knowing there are options.

    $\begingroup$ Looks interesting! 1) SE will probably wait for stability and "here to stay"-ness before even considering a switch. 2) Since everything happens in JS, it might be possible to make the switch locally by user script. $\endgroup$ – Raphael Sep 16 '14 at 6:11

    $\begingroup$ Related question on math.SE -- apparently KaTeX does not support many features as of now? $\endgroup$ – Raphael Sep 16 '14 at 6:12

I agree that this is worth looking at. Since this concernes more than one site, I pushed the matter upstream.
