Node.js is an event-driven system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable applications that require real-time interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can significantly accelerate the overall performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and incessantly provides tiny amounts of info. For instance, if a new user fills in a registration form, as soon as any information is entered in any of the fields, it is submitted to the server even if the other boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is processed a lot faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the whole form to be filled out and one giant chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change in case the Internet site grows bigger and there are many people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking websites, real-time browser video games or web-based chat clients, for instance, and a lot of companies, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already incorporated it into their services.
