Fx Hash

This hashing algorithm was extracted from the Rustc compiler. This is the same hashing algoirthm used for some internal operations in FireFox. The strength of this algorithm is in hashing 8 bytes at a time on 64-bit platforms, where the FNV algorithm works on one byte at a time.

Disclaimer

It is not a cryptographically secure hash, so it is strongly recommended that you do not use this hash for cryptographic purproses. Furthermore, this hashing algorithm was not designed to prevent any attacks for determining collisions which could be used to potentially cause quadratic behavior in HashMaps. So it is not recommended to expose this hash in places where collissions or DDOS attacks may be a concern.
