Arrow What Is Better To Use "div" Or "tables"?

Hi all,
I would like to know some doubts that I have. I have observed some websites which using "div" and other "tables". What is the difference between those two?

What do I get or what results, if I use "div" or "tables" in my website. I would like to hear some professional opinions.

Thanks a lot to all,

Tables are a little outdated, most of the websites are going to divs since that is controlled by css.

Default DIVs vs. Tables

Tables are not meant for layout purposes. They are meant for displaying tabular data, like a spreadsheet. DIVs are used for layout purposes. They are containers that you control using CSS & HTML.

Though div tags are the most flexible, if you don't know much html tables are easier.

Using one or the other has no impact on rankings etc.

I think table is still very popular, div is powerful but not flexible
