Node.js is an advanced event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable web apps. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of online users much more efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in difference between traditional systems which process the info in sizeable hunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For instance, when a user needs to fill out a few fields on a site, Node.js processes the information in the first field the moment it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In contrast, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it actually does make a difference when a large number of individuals are browsing a website at once. A few instances of sites where Node.js can be used are dinner reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words sites that need quick live interaction.
