In chain we get request data in next action.
While in redirect action a new request is generated. i.e. no previous request data.

"Chain" should (almost) never be used. (And the only reason I say "almost" is because there might be rare occurrences where it's okay... but they're rare.)
Redirect does exactly what its name implies; it tells the client to redirect to an action. You'd use it whenever you want to redirect to an action.
I agree. Here's the link:
