Axios is a popular promise-based HTTP client for the browser and Node.js. It provides an easy-to-use API for making HTTP requests and handling responses, supporting features like interceptors, request and response transformations, and automatic JSON data parsing. Axios allows for efficient handling of asynchronous operations and simplifies the process of working with REST APIs.

Compared to other HTTP clients like Fetch API, Axios offers more features out of the box, such as automatic transformation of response data and the ability to intercept requests and responses. Axios is actively maintained and widely used in the JavaScript community for its reliability and ease of use.
