as i remember they come from leibniz and newton, i think the first one was used by newton and they are the same(do not have any value which you use)

The first one looks cooler though I might be biased, I guess the second one is easier to draw? XD

The second one is the standard. I have never seen the first one. \(\delta\) is used in advanced calculus to mean a very small distance. There is a small difference here (no pun intended).
