Node.js is an innovative, event-driven asynchronous input/output system devised for websites which offer live communication. A few instances of such sites are web-based browser video game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform handles the info sent between the site and its users in small bits, which boosts the loading speed and the overall performance of the website significantly. If a certain form with 3 boxes has to be filled out by a particular user, for example, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the whole content is then delivered as one giant 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 types anything in the second box. Thus, a lot more information can be handled much faster and more efficiently in comparison with any other platform, which can exert a remarkable influence on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by some of the top IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
