What is the difference in equals operators (== vs ===) used in JavaScript comparisons?

Can someone please explain me the difference between == and === operators used in JavaScript and also the scenarios where these 2 operators are used?

    The == operator will check both values whether they are equal after a type conversion if required.

    The === operator does the same thing except the type conversion. Therefore you have to have the 2 comparing variables have the same type.

    Speed wise, === operator is faster.
