The HTML <footer></footer> element was first introduced in HTML5 and in Gecko 1.9.3. This element renders a footer for its nearest sectioning content or sectioning root element (ex. <body>, <nav>). A footer typically contains information about the author of the section, copyright data or links to related document.

Note: Information about the author should be enclosed in <address></address> that can be included into the <footer> element.
