Default Supersu vs superuser

Does it really matter? Is one better than the other? Can I just flash supersu over super user?

They both provide root management.

But some things have not worked correctly with superuser but have worked with SuperSu. Such as ViPER4Android driver install.

You can just install SuperSu app through the play.store and set it to preserve itself through nightly ROM flashes.

Yes there is a difference depending upon which Rom you're flashing.... currently supersu by chainfire is the only one problem free with 4.4+ roms
