What is the Difference Between driver.get() and driver.navigate().to(“url”) in Webdriver?

What is the difference between using driver.get() method or driver.navigate().to(“url”) method in webdriver? Is one faster than the other?

You can use both methods to navigate to a url.

Because navigating to a URL is very common, then driver.get() is a convenient way. However it does the same function as the driver.navigate().to(“url”)

The driver.navigate() also has other functions, such as

driver.navigate().back()
driver.navigate().forward()
driver.navigate().refresh()
