Node.js is a leading-edge, event-driven I/O system meant for sites which offer live communication. Several examples of such websites are online browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js handles the info exchanged between the site and its users in small bits, which enhances the loading speed and the performance of the site tremendously. If a certain form with three boxes has to be filled by a particular user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then submitted as one giant chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. Therefore, much more information can be processed much faster and more effectively in contrast with any conventional platform, which can exert a substantial impact on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by some of the leading IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.
