Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous input/output system built for websites that offer interactive communication. A few examples of such websites would be web-based browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform processes the information transmitted between the website and its users in tiny bits, which enhances the load speed and the performance of the site considerably. If a certain form with three boxes should be filled by a particular user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then delivered as one giant chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. Therefore, much more info can be handled much faster and more efficiently compared with any traditional platform, which can exert a noticeable impact on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the largest IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.
