They do not use V8's event loop. V8 does implement an event loop, it is there . However, it is meant to be overridden or replaced, which is something both Chrome and NodeJS happen to do. The Nodejs event loop implementation differs from the browser-based event loop one. While Nodejs uses the Google V8 as its runtime, it does not use V8 to implement the event loop. Nodejs uses the Libuv library (written in C) to implement the event loop.  Browser (Chrome):  V8 just executes your JavaScript (If and else statements, for statements, functions, arithmetic operations e.t.c) and then hands over operations to Libevent .
