HTML <nav> tag

The HTML <nav> element represents a section of a page whose purpose is to provide navigation links, either within the current document or to other documents.

Common examples of navigation sections are menus, tables of contents, and indexes.

Run code

It's not necessary for all links to be contained in a <nav> element. <nav> is intended only for major block of navigation links; typically the <footer> element often has a list of links that don't need to be in a <nav> element.

Browser compatibility

The numbers in the table specify the first browser version that fully supports the <nav> element:

Element
<nav> 5 4 11.1 4.1 9
