And you received your reply.
The question is not as simple as it seems. You are talking about protocols which mostly achieve the same end but in slightly different ways. It may be possible to come up with, say, a tabele of tasks which one protocol is more suited for than another... that would make a very looong reply. If I'm going to write that much, I want to get paid for it thank you.
Put it this way - you use the simplest protocol for you to administer for the task in hand. Usually, this would mean GIF. But it really depends on the task, and it depends on you. Nobody can answer this question for you.
Personally, I wouldn't use either.
However, I suspect there is more to this than just the question. If I had some context, I may be able to be more definitive.
