Browserify is a popular tool that allows developers to use Node.js-style modules in the browser. It enables bundling of JavaScript files for the browser environment, making it easier to manage dependencies and modularize code. Browserify simplifies the development process by allowing you to write code using CommonJS modules and then bundling them into a single file that can be executed in the browser.

Compared to other module bundlers like Webpack or Rollup, Browserify is known for its simplicity and ease of use, especially for projects that do not require complex configurations. It is actively maintained and widely used in the JavaScript community for browser-side module bundling.
