There are a host of chain manufacturers, and each has their own set of features.

Similarly, you may ask, what is the most aggressive chainsaw chain?

Stihl chain is a little more expensive but it's the most aggressive chain commonly available. It's also made from the hardest steel so it holds an edge better than any other brand I've tried (including Carlton, Saber and Bailey's Woodsman Pro).

Number of individual drive links must be counted. No exceptions. Simple length measurements (like "a 2 foot chain) are not helpful for correctly matching chains. Chain length is determined by a combination of distance between links (pitch) and the number of links.
