How does the React Router differ from conventional Routing?

  • URL Changes – A HTTP request is sent to a server for receiving a corresponding HTML page in conventional routing whereas, React routing necessitates only for a change in the History attribute.
  • Navigation – In React routing, the users feel like they are navigating across distinct webpages while in actuality they aren’t. But, in case of conventional routing, the user actually navigates across different web pages for each individual view.
  • Pages – Whereas in React routing only a single HTML page is involved, each view corresponds to a new file in conventional routing.
