i am trying to tell you the difference in 2 minutes.

using get method, you can see the query string appended directly behind your URL in the address field of browsers.

however, post method won't display your query string in the address field. Thus, it looks more secure.

the reason of this difference is the http request format:

in the http request of post method, query string is the last line. but in get method, query string is just behind the URL. it is in the first line

One more thing that when you are using get method then you can post limited data because we can not send huge amount of data using query string. If that is the case then we have to use post method.

One more thing get is not secure method it exposes your data to viewer. People can view the data in the URL. One can use post method to hide the data in URL.
