Node.js is an open-source, event-driven environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable web apps that require live interaction between a server and the online users and can substantially enhance the performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies small bits of info. For example, in case a new user fills in a signup form, as soon as any info is entered in one of the fields, it’s submitted to the server even if the other boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is handled a whole lot faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one huge hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the processing speed may be, things change if the website expands and there are many people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, real-time web browser-based video games or live chat systems, for instance, and a lot of corporations, among them eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already implemented it in their services.
