Attribute vs Property in HTML

The terms attribute and property can be confusing in HTML.

For example the javascript framework Angular has the concepts Property Binding and Attribute Binding . Without knowing the difference between the two it is difficult to grasp the difference between those concepts.

The major difference between the two is this:

Attribute is related to HTML

Property is related to DOM

Other differences:

  1. Attribute and Property names are not always similar
  2. Changing Attribute/Property values doesn't always get reflected to the other
  3. Attribute is case sensitive , Property is not
  4. Attribute values are always strings , Property can be of different data types

Here is an explanation with examples:
