    I just got a new printer: Brother DCP-9020CDW

    When adding the printer, I can choose between AirPrint or CUPS driver:

    I have tried both and I don't see any difference so far. Is one generally recommended over the other?

    Your printer is AirPrint capable. The choice of driver might be related to that. If you are going to choose to use the AirPrint capability then I would select the AirPrint driver.
