    Semantically a table is for tabular data, like a spreadsheet. For design and layout you should be using divs. Screen readers, as used by the visually impaired, do not present your content logically if you use a table for site layout. In some countries I understand you break internet usability regulations.

    As Wink said, for design purpose you should use div + css.

    A website designed using divs will load faster than if it was designed with tables and speed is a factor for how well a site can rank in Google. Websites designed with divs are also more mobile friendly than websites designed with tables and that is extremely important with how popular mobile phones and tablets are in modern times.

    Designing a website with tables is an old trend, that wad over.
    Now almost divs generation running with responsive web design techniques like
    Html5 and css3.
    So you just try to focus on new latest html tags like article, section which
    Are supported by all latest browsers.

    I have not started using the new html5 elements in my designs yet because there is still about 10% of the market that is using IE-8 or lower. WindowsXP users have no upgrade path to a Microsoft Browser that supports html5. In my tests a design using the new html5 elements will be blown rather disastrously by a browser that does not support those elements. CSS3 code seems to just be ignored, but html5 code will break the design completely.

    I agree with your point. Yes, with html 5 tags website will become looks like nothing in i e 8 for example css tricks dot com. It is a very popular website, it is designed with html 5 only. When you see the website in i e 8 it will become like a text only.

    One more thing you do. Use html code add CSS 3 properties to it. To some extent we can balance the design between various browsers.

    website designing in tables is more easy than a website desinging in div, but managing a website in div is more easier in a beautiful manner than anything else.

    Div is better than table. Use div if you want to make your website more appealing.

    Div is the best for website designing compare to table. if you use table then your website can't become responsive.

    Both is depend on your work and your website requirements. You cannot choose simple one out of both. You may have to use both as your requirement.

    Div is better than tables. Because tables are just limited to the creation of forms, but where as divs are more reliable and flexible in there use. The box or section that was created in div has the ability to move all around the page with CSS very easily, but the table was not having the ability to move easily.

    divs should be always the preferences as they are easy to manage and a lot can be done with the help of divs and they are helpful to manage complicated designs as well.
