HTML is such a simple language that most developers don't even consider it as a programming language, but today, we are going to go below the surface, and uncover 15 HTML tags that you can take advantage of today!
Cite is a tag that allows you to reference sources you mentioned throughout your website. It is mostly used in citing bibliographic or other site references.
<cite> example.com </cite>
Another HTML tag that acts pretty much exactly the same as the Cite tag. As the name suggests, this tag allows you to mark addresses.
<address style="font-size: 21px;">
This tag allows you to create a button which displays some information once clicked.
<details> <summary>Developers</summary> <p>The most important Occupation</p></details>
You know those progress bars that show you how much percent a file is downloaded? Well, this is the tag behind that magic.
<label>Downloading progress:</label><progress value="32" max="100"> 32% </progress>
This tag allows you to highlight words, or phrases that you consider important for your audience to see.
A Quick Conclusion
Do I recommend you using any of these tags? Well, I don't. I believe that if these tags are unpopular, they might be no longer supported by HTML.
However, there is no harm in checking them out!

You should absolutely use these tags for the appropriate content. You can be confident that they are part of the future HTML specification and in no danger of being deprecated or removed from the language. :)
That's true, the chances of HTML deperacating these tags are slim, but it has happen before! Like with the tag. :)

What's the different use case for cite vs blockquote? And details/summary is awesome! And accessible too!
blockquote represents a block quotation, and cite represents a reference to a name, work, standard, URL, etc.
Usar as tags para cada tipo certo ajuda com a acessibilidade. Js
