  • type="submit" : Help submit a form, it use to working with a <form> tag. This is the default feature.

    type="button" : You can not submit a form, it's helpful in some case manipulation with <input> tags but doesn't want to submit or reload the page.

    * Note: you also can submit a form with type="button" but you need to use javascript to submit the form and opposite.
