Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable web apps that require real-time interaction between a web server and the online users and can significantly boost the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and constantly provides tiny amounts of information. For instance, if a new user fills out a registration form, the second any information is entered in one of the fields, it is delivered to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is processed much faster. In comparison, traditional systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one large hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the website expands and there’re numerous individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, real-time web browser-based games or web-based chat clients, for instance, and numerous companies, among them Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already included it in their services.
