It would be great to have a native binding to Zlib and Snappy exposed to Javascript in the browser. Zlib covers the expensive disk use-cases, Snappy covers the expensive CPU use-cases.

Also a native binding to basic crypto primitives, even if that means just SHA1 to start, and even if the Node.js crypto api is copied verbatim.

TypedArrays are in current implementations are too slow to help with these, as far as I have tried.
