The border conflict resolution solves the situation of having two neighbouring elements, one with a defined border style and another with a border style of none with border collapse set to collapse. In this case the border style none would be over written by the neighbouring elements border. Setting the value to hidden instead of none would ensure that no border be placed around the element.

Here is a link that may explain more clearly and more in-depth than I have.

There is no visual difference.

W3Schools defines the "hidden" value for the border-style property as "The same as "none", except in border conflict resolution for table elements"
