Summary

In this chapter, we learned about forms and the benefits of using them. We have seen the difference between basic HTML forms and HTML5 forms.

We learned about the new <form> controls, date, week, tel, email, range, numbers, and many more for which we do not have to rely on JavaScript and how they work in the modern browsers.

We also built a sample form to get well versed with the forms and at the end of the chapter we learned the best practices to create effective web forms.

Overall, we've seen ways to reduce the amount of scripting and development time when users need to create full-featured forms with the help of HTML5.
