When optimizing your programs DON'T try, say, swapping out / for >>. At least if you're writing C, C++, Rust, or JavaScript. These sorts of optimizations (all some people know) are usually already done for you, as I've been spending over a month now explaining, and as such just serves to make your code less readable.

If you have otherwise squeezed all the performance out from your code & need more, take measurements. Know what you're doing.
