pdf.js rendering performance

Hello there User Research,

some feedback from our users: we got complaints about the PDF-renderer so slow that
it hurts. They have to deal with scanned documents and the larger ones take >15s
to render on a somewhat recent machine, which is quite a step back from what they
are used to.

I'm aware that this due to the way/the parameters the PDFs were created with but we
have to live with what we've got. As of now, this might be a mayor annoyance and will
decrease our users' experience with their brand new DMS.

I don't know how much potential speed-up pdf.js has, but if not: is there any plan B
or C like to bring back the old flash based renderer or anything?

Cheers,
