inline vs inline-block

Consider displaying inline and displaying inline-block are essentially the same unless certain styles are applied to the inline-block is there any reason / advantage why not to use inline-block instead of inline everywhere?

Sorry if this is answered later.

It depends on what you're trying to do. For example, if you're creating a menu on a user interface where you want your menu inline hyperlinks to look more neat, professional and aesthetic, you might want to use inline-block.

But as I said it depends what you're trying to do. There are some cases, where it might not be as much of an issue. Hope this helps.
