10 HTML anchor tag usages you must know(in short videos)

As a webdev, you must have used the anchor(a) tag ample times. The regular usages are, linking to a webpage, opening the page in a new tab, or linking to a page section.

However, there are other usages, you should know as well. I have created a short video series to cover all the usages. The series also includes a video to style anchor tag. I hope you find them helpful and enjoy watching them.
