Vocabulary Index provides an easy way to create a taxonomy browser / directory index. You can choose for which vocabularies to create pages or blocks where the terms within that vocabulary are listed. With just a few clicks you're done. Listing is possible in different kind of views depending on your needs:

Only local images are allowed. The tree view displays all terms in a nested tree. If visitors of your site have JavaScript enabled, parent terms will be collapsed by default, but they will expand when clicked on. Since tree view displays all terms on a single page, terms with multiple parents are displayed more than once: once beneath every parent.
Only local images are allowed. The browsable view lets visitors browse a vocabulary much like they would browse through directories on their hard drive. Taxonomy pages of parent terms do not list the nodes within those terms, but the child terms it contains. Since blocks cannot span multiple pages, they can be displayed using a flat view. This is exactly the same as the browsable view apart from that it is not browsable. Browsable index pages are pageable.
Only local images are allowed. The alphabetical view sorts terms by first letter. Optionally character transliteration may be enabled. Alphabetically viewed index pages are pageable.

Views is the Swiss pocket knife for creating your own 'lists' of taxonomy data (and users, nodes, comments, etc.), but it cannot do what Vocabulary Index does. If you want to browse through a vocabulary's hierarchy, view its terms as a nested tree or browse terms by letter, then Vocabulary Index is the right tool for the job. If you want plain lists with lots of filters, custom sorting and limits, for instance, then you should use Views.
