Node.js is an innovative, event-driven input/output platform devised for websites which offer live interaction. Some instances of such sites would be web-based browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform processes the info sent between the site and its visitors in little bits, which boosts the loading speed and the overall performance of the website significantly. If a certain form with three boxes is expected to be filled out by a particular user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled out and their entire 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 once it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. Thus, much more info can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently in comparison to any other platform, which can exert a huge influence on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being used by many of the top IT companies such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
