Apply for probate online or by post?

I'm finally in a position where I can submit the PA1P and IHT205 forms for my mother's estate (relatively simple affairs - she was a widow with a mortgage free freehold property, 4 bank accounts and small number of shares in one company). So far, I have been using the paper versions of the forms as working copies before submitting but I'm sure I read on another thread that the online forms are quite different to the paper. Please could anyone advise what the differences are and which method might be quicker? It has taken three months to obtain all of the information needed and I would like to make up for what I feel is lost time, if possible. If it makes any difference the HMRC site indicated my local probate court is Oxford. Any advice gratefully received.
