HTML5 has become popular amongst web developers and revolutionized the way developers write web applications. WebSocket is a core to HTML5 specification and a perfect solution for pushing data from the server to client in real time. Until now, to achieve this process you had to use a traditional HTTP mechanism such as Long Polling, comet, server-side push, or XMLHttpRequest, all of which offered poor performance and did not guarantee up-to-date real-time information—in fact, the development community considered many of these options convoluted hacks.
