    Visualforce components are small, reusable pieces of functionality—think widgets, panels, user interface elements, that kind of thing—that you use in Visualforce page markup. You can use standard Visualforce components, and create your own custom components.
    While The Lightning Component framework is a UI framework for developing single page applications for mobile and desktop devices. As of Spring '20 (API version 48.0), you can build Lightning components using two programming models: the Lightning Web Components model, and the original Aura Components model.

    Visualforce components are page-centric and most of the work is done on the server. Lightning is designed from the component up, rather than having the concept of a page as its fundamental unit. Lightning Components are client-side centric, which makes them more dynamic and mobile-friendly.
