Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable web 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 effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms which process the information in large hunks, it processes everything in small bits. For instance, if a user needs to fill out a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the information from the first field the second it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In contrast, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it actually does make a difference if an enormous number of individuals are navigating a website all at once. A few examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. websites that support quick live communication.
