Difference between asp:button and html’s button

I’m learning asp.net. I have question about example buttons

I can use two types of button.

   <input id="Button1" type="button" value="button" />

   <asp:Button ID="Button3" runat="server" Text="Button" />

What are the main differences between the two?

Method 1

One is a server control (the asp button) that when rendered on the page includes javascript that handles the postback logic, as well as being exposed to your code-behinds as a control you can address by its ID. The Html control is platform agnostic, and is rendered by your browser as just a button. That button will raise click events but will not POST your form.

Method 2

Each click will make a round trip to server, which should not occur everytime. HTML Button is much lighter and should be used to make client – logic like client validation, run client script,etc….
ASP button will makes a POST everytime you click, html button do not.
