What’s the difference between a muzzle brake and a compensator?

A compensator, much like a muzzle brake, is designed to reroute expelled gasses in order to achieve less recoil and muzzle movement. Whereas the brake tends to aid greatly in reduced recoil and only slightly in lessened muzzle movement; the compensator does the exact opposite.
