Spectacle and ksnip - what is the difference?

what is the difference between spectacle and ksnip? it looks to me they are quite the same
why is spectacle the kde standard printscreen tool and not ksnip?
just wondering

Spectacle is app provided by KDE Community. Ksnip is independent app. That’s why Spectacle is default in KDE.

spectacle is the successor to ksnapshot, and it is the default because that’s what the KDE developers have decided.

There are yet other suitable replacements if you don’t like spectacle, such as flameshot.
