What's the difference between <input type=submit> and <button>

What’s the difference between
<input type="submit" value="Get Started">
<button> Get Started </button>

First one can be multiple types including button, second can be only button.

So they work exactly the same?

input is used for write data there in this case submit is used as button to send the form but same can do with <button type="submit">go</button> and the button is just a button. Both case can make a styled input or button to click to send!

On surface and only if the input is of type="button". Also inputs have name and value attributes which is needed inside a form for sending to a backend handler. input type doesn’t need to be a submit if you use ajax.
