Get appends form-data into the URL in name/value pairs. The length of a URL is limited to about 3000. Get is not secure, so it shouldn't be used to send sensitive data (the data will be visible in the URL). It's best used for things like query strings. A URL with a get request can be bookmarked.
Post appends form-data inside the body of the HTTP request. The data isn't shown in the URL, and has no size limitations. A post request can't be bookmarked.
