Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven input/output platform meant for Internet sites that offer real-time interaction. Some instances of such sites would be online browser-based video game portals, online chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js handles the info transmitted between the site and its visitors in small bits, which boosts the load speed and the overall performance of the site tremendously. If a certain form with 3 boxes has to be filled out by a particular user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then sent as one massive hunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the moment it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. Therefore, a lot more info can be processed much faster and more efficiently in contrast with any other platform, which can exert a considerable effect on the performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by some of the largest IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.
