In brief: Similar
Both drugs are so-called partially selective nsaids.
Their side effects are similar. Because they have absolutely different molecular structure, there are individual differences in effect. Therefore neither is the best or worst.

In brief: NSAIDs
These are non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicines and work very well to help with common problems caused by inflammation - arthritis, for example.
All anti-inflammatories (including over the counter nsaids) have the risk of putting a litte extra strain on the heart. Although some of these medicatins (vioxx, bextra) were removed from the market, overall most doctors agree these are very safe.
