Default Node devs: NPM or Yarn?

I've been noticing a lot of newer stuff nowadays referencing Yarn instead of NPM. I know Yarn was created to counter some of NPM's problems back in the day, but is that still true? Does anyone know of any un-opinionated reasons to still switch to Yarn in the current day? Or I guess maybe some opinionated reasons too (it does x better!).

Everything else aside, I just wish one of them would come up with an 'audit fix' for global packages...

Never globally install anything.

You should pick or the other for a project.

Yarn can be faster because it can install packages in parallel.

I just use npm because, well, it's there and because everything from Facebook sorta sucks.
If you don't pass this sig to ten of your friends, you will become an Oilers fan.
