The HTML <form> method Attribute is used to specify the HTTP method used to send data while submitting the form. There are two kinds of HTTP methods, which are GET and POST. The method attribute can be used with the <form> element. Attribute Values:
GET: In the GET method, after the submission of the form, the form values will be visible in the address bar of the new browser tab. It has a limited size of about 3000 characters. It is only useful for non-secure data not for sensitive information.
POST: In the post method, after the submission of the form, the form values will not be visible in the address bar of the new browser tab as it was visible in the GET method. It appends form data inside the body of the HTTP request. It has no size limitation. This method does not support bookmark the result.
