I went from completely stock to Superblue, Vesrah RJLs and Fren Tubo Kevlar lines... HUGE difference
Can't tell you how much the Superblue actually did.

Brake fluid is not gonna change how your bike stops. It's more about moisture absorbing, corrosion resistance and temperature.
If you want better brakes start with pads, then stainless lines, (stock rubber lines expand when you brake and don't provide a solid feel), then rotors if you want to go all out.
Of course use quality brake fluid but unless you're racing getting the really expensive, super stuff isn't gonna help.

No, Super Blue is a DOT 4.
To the OP, it won't change pedal feel or initial bite of your brake pads or anything like that. It just has a higher boiling point (among other qualities mentioned above) and there will be less brake fade (unless the fade is because of your pads and/or lines) with continued brake use over a short period of time (ie: the track).

I've been using it for 4 years now. Quality fluid for all the reasons Trish mentioned plus it doesn't break the bank. But my favorite reason for using it is ease and visibility when flushing your lines. Just flush until you see all blue fluid and stop. For your next flush use Typ200 which is the same exact fluid but amber color. Then just keep alternating back and forth.
