|Microdata is a new lightweight semantic meta-syntax. Using attributes, we can define nestable groups of name-value pairs of data, called microdata, which are generally based on the page’s content. It gives us a whole new way to add extra semantic information and extend HTML5. Microdata is already being used by google to extract semantic meta data from your webpage.|
|The Microdata DOM API is helpful because you can manipulate items and properties on a page programmatically, perhaps to present the information in a searchable/filterable manner, or deliver it to another application somewhere else.|
|It's supported by Opera and [also being implemented by Mozilla](https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=591467)|
