I only used Titebond a few times during a class I was taking, and it held well, but it didn’t allow you to do a rub joint like you can get with hot glue. The instructor also mentioned that it takes longer to undue the joint than the hot glue, but it was also easier to repair a broken joint with the Titebond.

The biggest advantage of hot glue, however, would be the ability to choose the strength of the glue. As far as I’m aware, Titebond has only one level, but you can get several levels of strength for hot hide glue, which allows you to tailor it to what you need, including the open time.
