Perhaps its more a temporal difference.

Whilst "among" and "amongst" are exactly equivalent, "while" and
"whilst" are not. "While" has uses as a verb, a noun, an adverb, and a
conjunction, but "whilst" only has the latter two.

..and that is half the battle, words are used incorrectly. I still feel that context is important though, make it simple is my adage.
