I guess the most complete answer would be found here:

A new Mathematica programming style that emphasizes prefix and postfix-
pure function is presented as an alternative to the traditional
matchfix-dominated style. Postfix-pure function amounts to a
functional-procedural fusion that makes it easier for non-functional
programmers, such as procedural programmers, to learn Mathematica than
via matchfix style. Prefix simplifies expressions, while necessitating
familiarity with the operator binding strength or precedence present
in Mathematica. Accordingly, the 1000-scale precedence table for
shorthand operators is given for Version 6.0.
