The <wbr> tag in HTML stands for word break opportunity and is used to define the position within the text which is treated as a line break by the browser. It is mostly used when the used word is too long and there are chances that the browser may break lines at the wrong place for fitting the text.
Syntax: 
 

<wbr>

Note: The <wbr> tag is new in HTML5 and it does not require end tag.
Below examples illustrate the <wbr> tag in HTML 5:
