javascript – gapi.load versus gapi.client.load

As indicated by the CORS documentation, the gapi.load function is used to dynamically load specific JavaScript libraries.

As documented in the description of the gapi.client.load function (which is provided by the client JS library), gapi.client.load is used to build a JavaScript interface for accessing specific HTTP(S) APIs; you can also do this sort of thing yourself using API discovery (search for it to find docs) and sending API requests directly with gapi.client.request or CORS.

Edit: added clarification based on Brian Slesinskys follow-up comment and made minor wording changes.
