MD is an acronym of Markdown Documentation, which is developed by John Gruber. An MD file extension is a text file created by using one of the numerous possible dialects of the markdown language. These files stored in plain text format. Still, they contain inline text symbols that describe how to format the text written in the form of bold, headers, table formatting, etc. these files are authoring plain text document which can easily convert to HTML file extension. 

MD files are useful not only for the HTML documentation systems but also for the source code version control. It is because the data can compare against the repetition of historical facts in the human-readable text, whereas the binary format cannot easily distinguish.
