    Fieldset is to be used to group form elements only. Why would you want to use it in place of div anyway? That is what a div is for – creating a division of linked block elements.

    The fieldset tag helps to visually group elements, such as a login form or a group of links.

    I’ve already answered and Fieldsets are for grouping form elements. Not everything you find on the internet is correct. It may not be used for a groups of links – for that you would typically use UL.
