- GHC supports the entire Haskell 2010 language plus a wide variety of extensions.
- GHC has particularly good support for concurrency and parallelism, including support for Software Transactional Memory (STM).
- GHC generates fast code, particularly for concurrent programs. Take a look at GHC's performance on The Computer Language Benchmarks Game.
- GHC works on several platforms including Windows, Mac, Linux, most varieties of Unix, and several different processor architectures. *There are detailed instructions for porting GHC to a new platform.
- GHC has extensive optimisation capabilities, including inter-module optimisation.
- GHC compiles Haskell code either directly to native code or using LLVM as a back-end. GHC can also generate C code as an intermediate target for porting to new platforms. The interactive environment compiles Haskell to bytecode, and supports execution of mixed bytecode/compiled programs.
- Profiling is supported, both by time/allocation and various kinds of heap profiling.
- GHC comes with several libraries, and thousands more are available on Hackage.
