Not much really, it's just overused, like Python.

I have used node.js to host multiplayer/non-static websites as well as backend algorithmic logic. It is great for hosting websites because you only need to learn one language for your front end and backed (js).

Node.js is a great language for server development, and it is a key language in something called react.

React is a way to abstract html.
