Android When should I use a Handler and when should I use a Thread

0 votes
Starting a new Thread and running it works perfectly when I require something to run asynchronously, such as a long-running process or logic that uses the network, or for any other reason. Running a Handler after it has been created also works. What's the distinction? Which one should I employ when? What are the benefits of using a Handler instead of a Thread?

PS. - For the purposes of this inquiry, disregard AsyncTask. - Since I understand the purpose of Handler().postDelayed, let's pretend for the purposes of this inquiry that I require the task to begin immediately.

Because Chrome V8 is a JavaScript engine, it can run JavaScript scripts. JavaScript was initially created to be used by web browsers. Server-side scripting is feasible thanks to Chrome V8, often known as V8, which can run JavaScript code both within and outside of a browser.

Chrome V8 is a quick and potent engine, similar to an eight-cylinder V8 automotive engine. V8 executes the translated, or compiled, code after translating JavaScript code directly into machine code* so that computers can truly understand it. JavaScript execution is also optimised by V8.

CPUs can interpret a language called machine code. It is entirely digital, or composed of digits.
