Default echo and print ?

Would anyone know which is the fastest between echo and print and why? Also is one safer to use than the other? If so, why?

Thanks in advance

Code:
% print a
a
% echo a
a
% which print
print: shell built-in command
% which echo
echo: shell built-in command
Same speed, both built-in.

Take a look on printf which has different functionality then echo/print.
