Automobile manufacturers must compete in a marketplace where fuel consumption, horsepower and torque are big factors, but they must also comply with emissions and other regulations. To meet these demands modern cars are controlled by computers. The computer, known as an ECU (Engine Control Unit), controls all engine settings like the air/fuel mixture, ignition timing and idle speed. A quick and easy way to do this and upgrade your vehicle’s performance is with a “superchip”, also known as an aftermarket performance chip. Aftermarket performance chips are made to adjust parameters to increase engine power and torque. The effects of the superchip can be easily reversed just by plugging it into the ECU and choosing the reset option, which will cause the ECU to revert to the factory settings. Overall, upgrading your ECU settings with a superchip is a fairly simple and low cost alternative for the everyday auto enthusiast.

In my opinion no, they're not worth it. For the true modder a canned tune just isn't sufficient, a dyno tune with HP Tuners/EFI Live/etc is much more ideal since every car is different and responds different to mods. And checksum logging by the ECU can rat on you if the dealer suspects you've played with your tune, not worth it to deny a warranty on your daily driver for what amounts to a couple horsepower on a naturally aspirated car.

Dyno tune may set up your engine to the maximum performance, however performance chips come with at least 2 different mods: maximum performance and Economy. So you can select your mode on the go.
Whenever you need get maximum output, for example you tow a trailer - it will set up the engine and transmission accordingly. But if you're simply driving to work and want to save some gas you can turn on the economy mode.
