Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven input/output platform intended for Internet sites that offer real-time interaction. Some examples of such sites are online browser game portals, online chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js processes the information transmitted between the site and its users in little bits, which improves the load speed and the overall performance of the site considerably. When some form with three boxes should be filled by a specific user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then forwarded as one giant hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in 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 handled much faster and more effectively compared with any traditional system, which can exert an immense impact on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the leading IT firms like Microsoft and Yahoo.
