What compiler does Overleaf use?
When Overleaf compiles your project, we use a standard set of programs, classes, and packages that come from the TeX Live LaTeX distribution. With each new release of TeX Live, enhancements are made, new features are provided, and sometimes old packages are retired.
What engine does Overleaf?
However, unlike Knuth's original program, XeTeX natively reads (inputs) UTF-8 encoded Unicode text and, with assistance from its built-in HarfBuzz shaping engine, supports modern font formats such as OpenType (OTF) and SIL's Graphite font technology. The corresponding LaTeX compiler on Overleaf is called xelatex .
What language does Overleaf use?
The parameter python is the programming language the source code is written in. minted supports over 150 programming and markup languages as well as configuration files, see the reference guide for a list of supported languages.
Should I use PDFLaTeX or XeLaTeX?
PDFLaTeX is faster than XeLaTeX as you've noticed. It also currently has better support for certain advanced microtypographic features. (Margin kerning and the like.) And if you really want to confuse yourself, you could also be considering LuaLaTeX at this point too.
Why is Overleaf not compiling?
If your document compiles locally, but not on Overleaf, the most common causes are compilation timeouts, or the use of uncommon templates or packages that do not come standard with TeXLive. See here, for more details on compilation timeout errors.
What is the best LaTeX Compiler?
Following are some of the best LaTeX editors:

Which is better TeXstudio or texmaker?
TeXstudio has a slightly "brighter" looking standard UI, but I can't say I like it better than the texmaker UI. In summary, I think your choice between Texmaker and TeXstudio should depend on whether you ever thought that Texmaker offers a too little options/is a bit short on customizability.
