LC's regex library is the same PCRE library everyone else uses. And it's the latest released version. Regex's power lies in its ability to match complex patterns, which doesn't necessarily translate to speed.

2) planning on rewriting my code to use chunks.

You may find that regex matching works better than LC's chunk matching in some situations. For speed though, it's hard to beat the built=in chunking functions in LC, as they're already pretty well optimized.
