· Web Dev Zone

The Web Dev Zone is brought to you in partnership with Mendix. Download this Forrester Report to gain a better understanding of the low-code platform market and how to make a strategic platform selection you won’t regret.

Parallel. js is a JavaScript library which allows you to perform multi-core processing in JavaScript. Despite fast JavaScript engine like Google V8 engine, JavaScript is inherently single-threaded.

Compared to other languages like Java, this might seem like a disadvantage. However, Parallel.js solves this problem by giving you a high level access to multi-core processing using web workers.

As long as your browser supports web workers, you can have parallelism in your JavaScript applications.
