HTML5: <Footer> element

HTML5 provides a footer element but I tried a few browsers and the content under footer is not placed at the bottom of the page but immediately after the block of content above the footer.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head lang='en'>
    <meta charset='UTF-8'>
    <title>Codecrawl.com - HTML 5</title>
    <style>
        section {
            clear: both;
            border: 2px solid #000;
            padding: 1%;
            width: 60%;
        }
    </style>
</head>
<body>
<section>
    <article>
        <header>
            <h1><a href='#'>Rod Stewart</a></h1>

            <p>17.05.2014</p>
