ASP.NET dll compilation in debug or Release Mode

Last Modified: 2013-12-12

As I know there is two way in ASP.NET for dll deployment of production servers:

1. Compile  the code in Release Mode, in this way, dll will be lighter, without debug symbol, and this way code execution will be much faster.
2. compile the code as normal, in debug mode. and set the web.config node "debug Mode=false".

My Questions is:
What is difference between Compiling the code in *only* Release Mode or *only* setting the web.config node.

Please suggest.
