HTML <footer> Tag


The HTML <footer> tag is a structural element used to define the footer section of a web page or a specific section within a webpage. Typically placed at the bottom of a page or within a specific content area, it contains information such as copyright notices, contact information, links to important pages, and other supplementary content that provides context or additional details about the webpage. The <footer> tag helps in organizing and structuring the content of a webpage, making it more accessible and user-friendly, and it is an essential component for maintaining proper HTML semantics.
