Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking input/output platform used for Internet sites which support interactive communication. A few instances of such sites are online browser game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js handles the info exchanged between the website and its users in small bits, which enhances the load speed and the performance of the website significantly. If a given form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled out by a particular user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then forwarded as one giant 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 box. In this way, much more info can be processed much faster and more efficiently compared with any conventional platform, which can have a significant influence on the site’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the leading IT companies like Microsoft and Yahoo.
