Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven I/O system built for Internet sites that support real-time communication. Some examples of such websites would be web-based browser video game portals, live chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform handles the information sent between the website and its users in small bits, which improves the load speed and the performance of the website tremendously. When a certain form with three boxes is expected to be filled out by a particular user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled and the entire content is then forwarded as one big chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the second it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. Thus, much more info can be handled much faster and more efficiently in contrast to any conventional system, which can have a considerable effect on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by some of the biggest IT firms such as Microsoft and Yahoo.
