Html5shiv is a JavaScript library that enables the use of HTML5 elements in older versions of Internet Explorer, specifically IE 6 to IE 9. It allows these browsers to recognize and style HTML5 elements like <header>, <footer>, <nav>, and <article>, ensuring proper rendering and functionality.

As modern browsers have evolved to support HTML5 natively, the need for html5shiv has decreased. It is considered a legacy solution and is no longer actively maintained. Developers are encouraged to rely on browser feature detection and progressive enhancement techniques instead of using html5shiv. Alternatives like Modernizr can provide more comprehensive feature detection and fallback solutions.
