Do you mean using read without -e vs using read with -e?
With -e you can use all the readline capabilities, without you only have
what your terminal provides

On my terminal with read -e, I can type "foo", press control+a to go at the
beginning of the line, press control+k to kill(cut) everything then control
+ y to yank(paste) it back

Without I only see: foo^A^K^Y
