Wget vs Curl: What's the Difference?

Both Wget and Curl are good at making HTTP and FTP requests without using a web browser or other interactive application. The main difference between Wget and Curl is that Curl, along with the command-line tool, also offers a powerful cross-platform library (libcurl) with an extended API, supports over 25+ protocols, and works on all modern platforms. At the same time, Wget is just a command-line tool that downloads data as files and only offers support for HTTP requests, but Wget has a strong side - the ability to download recursively.
