Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable web applications that require live communication between a web server and the worldwide web users and can considerably enhance the overall performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly delivers tiny amounts of info. For example, if a new user fills in a registration form, once any info is inserted in any of the fields, it is sent to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is processed a whole lot faster. In comparison, other systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one sizeable hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change when the Internet site grows bigger and there’re numerous individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, interactive browser-based video games or web-based chat platforms, for example, and lots of corporations, including eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.
