Browserify is a popular JavaScript tool that allows you to use Node.js-style modules in the browser. It enables you to write modular code using the CommonJS module system and then bundles all the required modules into a single file that can be used in the browser. This helps in organizing and managing dependencies, making it easier to develop and maintain large-scale JavaScript applications.

Compared to other bundlers like webpack, Browserify has a simpler and more focused approach. It is lightweight and easy to set up, making it a great choice for smaller projects or when you only need basic bundling functionality. However, for more complex projects with advanced features like code splitting or dynamic imports, webpack might be a better choice.
