Button Tag in HTML5

Here, you will see the use of button tag in html5.


Input The <input> tag specifies an input field where the user can enter data. These attributes make it easier to create forms and set automatic validation.  An input field can be a text field, a checkbox, a password field, a radio button, a button, and more.

Input Button Tag

The button tag gives you a way to create simple input buttons with custom text. It is similar to the INPUT submit tag but is slightly more flexible. You can say a button tag creates a push button. It is a clickable button that can send request using a GET or a POST and also performs a client side action in JavaScript. The <button> tag is supported in all major browsers.

Syntax
