Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable web apps that need real-time communication between a web server and the Internet users and can noticeably boost the performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and incessantly supplies little bits of information. For example, in case a new user fills a subscription form, the moment any info is entered in one of the boxes, it is forwarded to the server even if the other fields are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is processed a whole lot faster. In comparison, traditional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one huge hunk of information is then sent to the server. No matter how small the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change if the website grows bigger and there are lots of persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking portals, interactive web browser games or live chat portals, for example, and lots of companies, including eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.
