    Default SuperSU and Superuser

    I have a galaxy note 10.1
    I've rooted it.
    I'm confused tho why I have two super user icons, SuperSU and Superuser. Am I looking at two different things?
    SuperSU if I click on it, asks 'The SU binary needs to be updated. Continue?' It asks this everytime i run it.
    Superuser on the other hand also asks me this. I click 'Install' I get Installation of Superuser was successful
    In the allow column is SuperSU,Titanium Backup,DataCreate and Root Checker.
    Just a bit confused.

    Each superuser app use their own "su" binary. They all manage root. Just use one at a time.

    There are two apps called Superuser. One by Koush, which is a very respective dev, this is the default for CyanogenMod roms. And one by ChainsDD.

    SuperSU is made by ChainFire, this is the one I use and to me the best out of them since it have some useful features. The paid version can keep root over OTA updates.

    Thanks someguy, that is helpful. It would seem then I could get rid of one of them? I notice in 'application manager' that only Superuser shows up, SuperSU does not.
