Does British English prefer " different from" ? Seems like Americans all use "different than" in everyday. As English not being my native language, I am always bewildered.

British and American english are not the same. I hate how professors grade you differently if you were writing an essay using British terms just because Americans smell words slightly different. ex: Honour (British) as opposed to Honor (America)
- its full of bull.

We use "than" with words which is in the comparative degree.

Identical to.
Different from.

No argument here - this is not disputable, even if some try to dispute it.
