Big.js is a JavaScript library that provides arbitrary-precision decimal arithmetic. It allows you to perform precise calculations with decimal numbers, avoiding the rounding errors that can occur with native JavaScript number handling. Big.js supports a wide range of mathematical operations, including addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and more.

Compared to native JavaScript number handling, Big.js offers greater precision and control over decimal calculations. It is particularly useful in financial and scientific applications where accuracy is crucial. Big.js is actively maintained and has a large user community, ensuring ongoing support and updates.

An alternative to Big.js is the Decimal.js library, which also provides arbitrary-precision decimal arithmetic. Both libraries offer similar functionality, so the choice between them depends on personal preference and specific project requirements.
