Why use redirect="true"

Why should we use redirect="true", if I remove this tag my action forwarding works fine.
So why we specifically need this? Can some one educate me on this.

Thanks in advance.

it is nothing but response.sendRedirect("url") [making new request to the browser]. you better watch the address bar(url) of the browser for both cases.

Hope this helps
