Chai is a popular assertion library for Node.js and browsers that provides a clean and expressive syntax for writing test assertions. It offers a wide range of assertion styles, including should, expect, and assert, allowing developers to choose the one that best fits their testing preferences. Chai integrates seamlessly with popular testing frameworks like Mocha and Jasmine, making it a versatile choice for writing clear and readable test cases.

Compared to other assertion libraries like Jest or Jasmine, Chai stands out for its flexibility and extensibility, allowing developers to create custom assertions and plugins.
