HTML BR Tag Explained

The br tag is used to add line breaks in your HTML content.

Why not just press enter?

<p>
  This is line one.
  This is              line two.
</p>

This is line one. This is line two.

As you can see in the example above any excess white space including enters are removed from the rendered html.

Adding line breaks

<p>This is line one.<br />This is line two.</p>

This is line one.
This is line two.

By using the br tag you can add a line break that will make it to the rendered html

Conclusion

The br tag is pretty simple with only one use case and that is to add line breaks in your HTML content.
