keyup triggers when the user lets their finger off of a key, keydown triggers when the user presses a key, and keypress fired when a user presses a key, but keypress excludes keys that don't print anything to the screen, like the shift or esc

So, keyup when user finish insert key, keydown when user entering key, keypress same with keydown but not include key that doesnt show on screen(Ctrl,alt, and etc)

Yes. For example, using keyup, if you held down on a key, the code you wanted to run wouldn't run until you let go of the key, but the code will run as soon as you put your finger on the key if you use keydown. keypress works exactly the same as keydown, except it includes non-printing keys like Shift or esc
