best way to redirect user using jquery-javscript?

I have seen many methods like window.location.href=url, window.location.replace(...) and window.location, but can anyone tell me which is the best method to redirect user from one webpage to another using jQuery or javascript?

thank you

window.location.replace(url) is better than using window.location.href

.replace() does not keep the originating page in the session history, meaning the user won't get stuck in a never-ending back-button fiasco, as it simulates an HTTP redirect

while windows.location.href provides similar behavior as clicking on a link.

If you want to simulate someone clicking on a link, use location.href.

If you want to simulate an HTTP redirect, use location.replace.

// similar behavior as an HTTP redirect

// similar behavior as clicking on a link
window.location.href = "";
