HTML5 Elements such as article, header, footer, main, aside and many more are used for semantics - to add meaning to your code. It's easier for a person to read and edit the code when you know that the element is used as a footer for example. Its mainly a block element like div with a meaning. You can use div as another tag.

<footer> has no function exept for being schematic. It's an ordinary container just like <div>, <header> or <article>. A webpage doesn't need a footer and if you choose to have one there's no requirement of using <footer> or any other specific block element at all.

Also if you use footer or any other semantic elements, search engine like google will have better understanding of your content. So is best practice for SEO to use it if you can.

<div> is a generic tag and can replace any header / footer tag.

O L A I mean <cite> tag in html5

The HTML footer tag defines the footer for a web page or a section. Footers usually contain contact information, links to important pages on a website, and the author of a web page.

O L A A valid question, I had almost wrong the first time. If you break the issue up into smaller pieces, then it can be easier to get the thinking behind it. To be honest, I have never used a footer tag on anything. I find it devastating to see software companies that built (copies from GitHub or even open web-like Joomla) a website for a client to then use the footer tag for free advertising. In a year they usually don't update the year they placed in their ads/footer, making the client look like they closed their business last year and the website designers makes us (developers) looking like fools.
