In addition to Forge, there are other patches that can present problems due to conflicts when installed at the same time. Between these mods that can have conflicts, in addition to Forge, we find ModLoader and Dynamics Light (ModLoader edition). In these cases, the official Optifine site recommends installing your own latest patch, although another option is to carry out the same process specified with Forge above, it's up to each person to test which way works best for them on their PC.

The exception to not installing Optifine last would be only if the instructions for that patch specifically state otherwise

On the Optifine website, we can also find a recommendation related to MCPatcher. MCPatcher that among its main features offers HD textures, HD fonts and BetterGrass, but Optifine ensures that its patch has all these features well optimized. In other words, Optifine advises using your against without MCPatcher's HD features, to achieve even better performance.
