Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable web applications that need live interaction between a web server and the worldwide web users and can significantly boost the performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and incessantly provides small amounts of info. For example, if a new user fills in a subscription form, the second any info is entered in any of the boxes, it is sent to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is processed a whole lot faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one huge chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change if the website grows bigger and there are many people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking websites, interactive browser video games or online chats, for instance, and many corporations, including Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already incorporated it into their services.
