According to some benchmarks, it seems that KaTeX renders latex much more faster than Mathjax.
Is there any chance to use KaTeX in place of Mathjax?

Currently, KaTeX supports a limited subset of the functionality provided by MathJax. Many of the missing functionality (notably arrays and equation alignment) is regularly used on MathOverflow, so I would not recommend using KaTeX for viewing MathOverflow.

A visual comparison can be found here.
As noted in an earlier discussion, there are also important security issues with adding third-party javascript on MathOverflow. As far as I can tell, the KaTeX developers are not yet offering adequate support for a large site with lots of user input like MathOverflow. They might eventually offer that since they obviously need to support the Khan Academy, which has similar security needs.
