Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven asynchronous I/O system built for sites which support interactive communication. Some examples of such sites would be online browser video game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform handles the information sent between the Internet site and its users in tiny bits, which boosts the loading speed and the overall performance of the site tremendously. If a given form with 3 boxes should be filled out by a specific user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then sent as one giant chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more info can be handled a lot faster and more effectively as opposed to any traditional system, which can exert a remarkable influence on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by many of the biggest IT companies like Yahoo and Microsoft.
