Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking I/O system devised for websites that offer real-time communication. A few examples of such sites would be online browser-based game portals, online chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js handles the information sent between the site and its visitors in small bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the performance of the website considerably. If a given form with three boxes is expected to be filled out by a specific user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then submitted as one huge hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed once it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second one. Thus, much more info can be processed a lot faster and more effectively in contrast to any traditional platform, which can exert an enormous influence on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the top IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
