Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to build scalable apps. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and a large number of Internet users more efficiently than any other system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in difference between traditional systems that handle the information in sizeable hunks, it handles everything in small bits. For example, when a user has to fill in a couple of fields on a site, Node.js processes the information from the first field once it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it absolutely does make a difference if an immense number of people are browsing a website all at once. A few instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. sites that need fast live communication.
