Difference between Inset and Extrude+Scale

Hello. Is there a difference between:

Insetting a face and
Extrude (leave the Transision as is) and scale down the newly created loop?

It seems to me that's the same thing.
Will I expect surprises later on because eventually internal processing is different as it seems to be now?

While the Extrude Tool is a macro consisting of duplicate an Edgeloop and moving it in a second step,
Inset could be also a macro consisting of duplicate an Edgeloop and scaling it in a second step?
Is my assumption right?


Thank you.
