Javascript has become a really important technology to bring full interactive website to us. Javascript is famous to build interactive website components such as navigation drop down menu, tab, accordion, image slider etc. Besides that, with HTML5 canvas, WebGL and SVG, it's possible to create insane animation effects as well. However, this time, we are going to show you a few cool examples in which Javascript is used to create a multiplayer game platform. Most of them are using WebSockets, socket.io and node.js to make scalable and realtime apps. Have fun.
