using keyword inner join

Is there any specific advantage in using the keyword inner join in a query instead of just saying tab1.col1 = tab2.col1? Performance issues? SQL standard?

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1018822/inner-join-on-vs-where-clause has a very good discussion.  

The short answer is that you should use JOIN.  It is more readable and depending on your database may run more quickly.
