Node.js is an event-driven system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable apps that require real-time interaction between a web server and the online users and can considerably enhance the performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and incessantly provides small amounts of information. For example, if a new user fills a signup form, the second any info is inserted in any of the boxes, it is forwarded to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is handled much faster. In comparison, other systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one big chunk of information is then sent 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’re plenty of persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking sites, real-time web browser-based video games or web-based chat systems, for instance, and lots of companies, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.
