Node.js is an event-driven environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable web applications that require real-time communication between a web server and the online users and can tremendously speed up the overall performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies small amounts of info. For example, in case a new user fills in a subscription form, as soon as any info is entered in one of the fields, it is forwarded to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is processed a lot faster. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one massive hunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change when the website expands and there’re many people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, real-time browser-based games or live chat apps, for instance, and lots of companies, including LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.
