Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable web apps that require live interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can considerably improve the overall performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and constantly delivers little bits of info. For example, if a new user fills a subscription form, once any info is entered in one of the fields, it is sent to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is processed a lot faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one massive hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how small the difference in the information processing time may be, things change in case the site grows bigger and there are lots of people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, real-time browser games or online chat apps, for instance, and numerous companies, among them Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already included it in their services.
