Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime system, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable applications that require real-time interaction between a web server and the worldwide web users and can noticeably improve the overall performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies small bits of information. For instance, if a new user fills a signup form, once any info is inserted in one of the fields, it is forwarded to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In contrast, traditional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one giant chunk of information is then sent to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the processing time may be, things change when the site expands and there are many individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, real-time browser video games or online chat applications, for instance, and lots of companies, including eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already implemented it in their services.
