Closure Library vs UglifyJS: What are the differences?

Developers describe Closure Library as "Google's common JavaScript library". Closure Library is a powerful, low-level JavaScript library designed for building complex and scalable web applications. It is used by many Google web applications, such as Google Search, Gmail, Google Docs, Google+, Google Maps, and others. On the other hand, UglifyJS is detailed as "JavaScript parser / mangler / compressor / beautifier library for NodeJS". This package implements a general-purpose JavaScript parser/compressor/beautifier toolkit. It is developed on NodeJS, but it should work on any JavaScript platform supporting the CommonJS module system (and if your platform of choice doesn’t support CommonJS, you can easily implement it, or discard the exports.* lines from UglifyJS sources).

Closure Library belongs to "Javascript UI Libraries" category of the tech stack, while UglifyJS can be primarily classified under "Javascript Utilities & Libraries".

Closure Library and UglifyJS are both open source tools. UglifyJS with 8.11K GitHub stars and 762 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Closure Library with 3.22K GitHub stars and 840 GitHub forks.
