In JavaScript, the event.preventDefault() method is used to prevent the default behavior of an element.

For example: If you use it in a form element, it prevents it from submitting. If used in an anchor element, it prevents it from navigating. If used in a contextmenu, it prevents it from showing or displaying.

On the other hand, the event.stopPropagation() method is used to stop the propagation of an event or stop the event from occurring in the bubbling or capturing phase.
