Difference in SAVE AS JPEG & SAVE FOR WEB? - Adobe Photoshop Mac CS, CS2 & CS3

The "Save As Jpeg" seems to give me a higher file size versus the Save for Web. What is the difference? Even at a low compression of 60 in the Save for Web, it is still lower in file size than "Save As JPEG" with a higher compression. Can someone explain the difference between the two? Christine...

    Save for Web does not include the thumbnail data. Consequently it's smaller.

    Thanks, Ronald. So who needs a thumbnail anyway, right? All I want to do is upload my picture to eBay, actually.. so a thumbnail isn't even necessary, right?

    Save as JPG also imbeds non-image data, which has been known to cause
    problems with some web browsers.
