Hi, @ibrahimkayz10.

We generally use

tags to seperate a block of section of information on our webpage.

For example, making editorial columns in a newspaper.

Hope you’re question is answered.

I just saw you’re post, so I think it won’t be too late.

Happy Coding.

To add to mondralraif450’s answer:

A <div></div> element just makes a generic box on the page that can be used to organize page content. Since you can put another <div></div> within a div, you can have boxes within boxes. Basically it has no meaning, it’s just a place to put things relative to the page or things on the page. But css enables us to style these boxes and arrange them on the page.

In fact in your code you already have a <div></div> tag – <main></main> which is nothing but a div with another name to make it meaningful to people or screen readers looking at the code.
