Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven input/output system intended for websites which support real-time communication. Several instances of such sites would be online browser-based game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform handles the information sent between the Internet site and its users in little bits, which improves the loading speed and the performance of the site tremendously. If a certain form with 3 boxes should be filled by a user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then forwarded as one huge chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second one. In this way, a lot more information can be processed much faster and more effectively as opposed to any traditional platform, which can have an enormous influence on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the largest IT corporations like Yahoo and Microsoft.
