why REST is chosen the more compared to SOAP.

Hi Guys,

Can anyone help me with some presentation on SOAP vs REST, or I would say some straight bullet points would be great. I went through many online documentation and got more information. But I did not find strong lines that justify to use REST instead of SOAP.

1. What exactly mean by Architectural style in terms of REST. 
2. Why REST(not a standard method) is chosen the most now a days than SOAP(Standard).
3. How secured REST when compared to SOAP. I understand that SOAP has strongly coupled security, but why REST is chosen on top of this.

Thanks in advance for any help on this.
