Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable web apps that require real-time interaction between a web server and the online users and can noticeably accelerate the overall performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers tiny amounts of info. For instance, if a new user fills in a registration form, the moment any information is entered in any of the boxes, it is submitted to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is processed much faster. In comparison, other systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one sizeable hunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change in case the site grows bigger and there’re plenty of persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, interactive web browser games or instant messengers, for example, and a lot of corporations, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already integrated it into their services.
