Node.js is an event-driven runtime system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable applications that require live interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can substantially improve the performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers little amounts of information. For instance, in case a new user fills a registration form, as soon as any info is entered in one of the boxes, it’s sent to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is handled a lot faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one sizeable hunk of information is then sent to the server. No matter how little the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the Internet site expands and there’re lots of persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking websites, real-time browser video games or online chats, for example, and a lot of corporations, including LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already integrated it into their services.
