Crypto menu for SSL vs. page rule for SSL?

In the SSL/TLS app there’s an option to “always use HTTPS” and then there’s a page rule option to always use HTTP as well.

What’s the difference and why would I use one over the other?

As with many Page Rules, they’re applied for specific URLs. That Crypto setting applies to the entire website.

Some people need one part of their website to load over HTTP, so they turn off the global setting, create a Page Rule to keep it disabled for that one part, then another Page Rule to enable it everywhere else.

I’m not saying it’s a good idea, but it’s what some people do.
