for my part, I'm avoiding those kinds of things, preferring to rely on optimizations present in (usually, and for reasons) the C stdlib like string.h's strpbrk() and math.h's max() function

however, in order to make those branchless implementations really work effectively i still have to avoid branching in my own code. I expect the compiler to take my branchless code and apply SIMD instructions to its implementation of it.
