Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable web applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of online users much more efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to traditional platforms that process the information in giant hunks, it handles everything in small bits. For instance, in case a user has to fill out a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the information in the first field the second it is typed, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In contrast, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it really does make a difference when an immense number of individuals are navigating a site at once. Several examples of websites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words websites that support fast live interaction.
