Node.js is an advanced, event-driven non-blocking input/output system intended for Internet sites that offer real-time communication. Some instances of such sites are online browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js processes the information transmitted between the Internet site and its users in little bits, which accelerates the load speed and the performance of the site tremendously. When some form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a particular user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled out and their entire 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 second it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. In this way, much more info can be handled much faster and more efficiently in contrast to any conventional system, which can have a serious impact on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by many of the largest IT companies such as Microsoft and Yahoo.
