Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable apps. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of online users much more efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that unlike conventional systems that handle the info in giant hunks, it processes everything in small bits. For instance, if a user has to fill in a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the information from the first field once it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In contrast, other systems 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 negligible for one single person, but it really does make a difference when a large number of people are visiting a website at the very same time. Several instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. websites that support quick real-time interaction.
