Difference between clickAndWait versus navigae

Lets say we have two options to go to a certain page after a successful login:

(a) We can use clickAndWait href="/land"

OR

(b) navigate http://foo.bar.com/land

How exactly would these two measure up while being functionally equivalent?

They should measure as identically as well. There may be a difference where the browser doesn’t send a referer page for (b) since it was navigated directly but that’s the only thing that comes to mind.

Thank you for the confirmation
