Based in Houston, Texas; OptiFine is a modification that allows users to run Minecraft using less system resources. It also aims at improving the overall graphical quality.

Available as far back as Minecraft v1.0, OptiFine comes in three versions:

  • OptiFine Standard is designed to have the most support with other modifications.
  • OptiFine Light is designed to offer the optimisation required to run Minecraft on a lower-end machine.
  • OptiFine Ultra is designed to provide maximum performance and quality features.

While OptiFine is free, users may donate to the creators, in return for a custom OptiFine cape to use in-game.
