Difference between LILO and Grub?


During installation it asks for LILO or Grub as boot loader so what is the difference between these two?

I find lilo is easier but a bit less flexible compared to grub(for example, whenever you change something with lilo you have to rewrite lilo to the mbr, whereas grub you just edit it's configuration file without writing to the mbr all the time)
