javascript i++ vs ++i

In javascript I have seen i++ used in many cases, and I understand that it adds one to the preceding value:

for (var i=1; i<=10; i++) {
  console.log(i);
}

But what happens when I do this:

++i;

And is it any different using the -- operator (besides of course that it’s subtraction rather than addition)?
