What are the differences between LinearLayout, RelativeLayout, and AbsoluteLayout?

I am confused about the difference between LinearLayout, RelativeLayout, and AbsoluteLayout.
Could someone please tell me the exact differences between them?


LinearLayout means you can align views one by one (vertically/ horizontally).

RelativeLayout means based on relation of views from its parents and other views.

WebView to load html, static or dynamic pages.

FrameLayout to load child one above another, like cards inside a frame, we can place one above another or anywhere inside the frame.

deprecated - AbsoluteLayout means you have to give exact position where the view should be.
