Difference between and
in Ionic framework?

Ionic is an open source framework used for developing mobile applications. It provides tools and services for building Mobile UI with native look and feel. 

Lists are one of the most popular elements of any web or mobile application. They are usually used for displaying various information. They can be combined with other HTML elements to create different menus, tabs or to break the monotony of pure text files. The ionic framework offers different list types to make their usage easy.

The HTML formatting such as <div class ="list">will give you all the CSS styling that you are looking for. However, Ionic <ion-list> will give you more features.
