Metabase vs Explore: What are the differences?

Developers describe Metabase as "An open-source business intelligence tool". Metabase is an easy way to generate charts and dashboards, ask simple ad hoc queries without using SQL, and see detailed information about rows in your Database. You can set it up in under 5 minutes, and then give yourself and others a place to ask simple questions and understand the data your application is generating. On the other hand, Explore is detailed as "Free chart maker & visual exploration for spreadsheet data". It is a free online chart maker & visual data exploration tool for all your spreadsheet data (Excel, CSV, Google Sheets). It runs locally in your browser, and does not store your data in our servers - so, your data is absolutely safe.

Metabase and Explore can be categorized as "Business Intelligence" tools.

Metabase is an open source tool with 19.5K GitHub stars and 2.59K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Metabase's open source repository on GitHub.
