HTML | <isindex> tag

  • Last Updated : 15 Sep, 2021

The <isindex> tag is used to querying any document through a text field. Means this tag inform the browser that the user wants to provide the search function through the document. If you want to search any specific word in a long article this tag is helpful then. But during these days all the browsers contain that feature by pressing CTRL + F will let you search the word, so this tag is no more useful these days.
