Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable web applications that require live interaction between a web server and the worldwide web users and can considerably accelerate the performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and constantly provides little amounts of information. For instance, if a new user fills out a registration form, the second any info is inserted in one of the fields, it’s submitted to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is processed a lot faster. In comparison, other systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one giant chunk of information is then submitted to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the processing time may be, things change if the Internet site grows bigger and there’re lots of individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, interactive web browser games or live chat programs, for instance, and a lot of corporations, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already implemented it in their services.
