div vs section

Div are only some containers.
Div does what did before too. They are more like a place holders, containers that help us on styling our site better but they don't define anything specific. If you want, you don;t even have to use div, unless you use them for css support.

Sections are defining parts of our site better. Think that all these html new tags are added just because they communicate better with new devices.

So divs can wrap up sections and sections can contain divs.

Here is a code sample

<div class="main_holder">

<section class="cat_articles">
<head><h1>Cat Articles</h1></head>
<!-- we use div for css help - probably don;t even need it -->
<div class="content_holder">
<h1>Cat title</h1>
<!-- we can add div instead of <p> too -->
<p>Cat text excerpt</p>
<section class="dog_articles"> ... </section>

</div> <!-- end of main_holder -->
