lld is a high-performance linker that supports ELF (Unix), COFF (Windows),
Mach-O (macOS), MinGW and WebAssembly. lld is command-line-compatible with GNU
-linkers and Microsoft link.exe, and is significantly faster than these system
+linkers and Microsoft link.exe, and is significantly faster than the system
default linkers.
-lld 7 for ELF and COFF are production-ready. lld/ELF can build the entire
-FreeBSD/AMD64 and will be the default linker of the next version of the
-operating system. lld/COFF is being used to build popular large programs such as
-the Chrome web browser. Mach-O, MinGW and WebAssembly supports are still
-experimental.
