Node.js is a leading-edge, open-source, event-driven, I/O platform intended for websites that support interactive communication. Several examples of such websites are online browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js processes the info sent between the website and its visitors in tiny bits, which accelerates the load speed and the performance of the site considerably. When a given form with three boxes should be filled out by a user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then sent as one huge chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the second it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second box. Thus, much more info can be handled much faster and more effectively compared with any traditional platform, which can have an enormous influence on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by some of the biggest IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.
