WebSockets are a revolutionary technology that allows for interactive communication between a user's web browser and a server. Using the WebSockets API, it is possible to send messages to a server and receive real-time responses without the need for constant polling.

This technology has a number of benefits over traditional methods of communication such as HTTP. For one, WebSockets are much faster and more efficient, as they allow for a continuous two-way connection between the browser and server rather than requiring multiple requests and responses.

WebSockets are also highly flexible, able to support a wide range of applications and use cases. They can be used for real-time chat applications, live data updates, online gaming, and much more.
