Immutable is a JavaScript library that provides persistent data structures to make working with immutable data easier and more efficient. It allows you to create immutable collections like List, Map, and Set, which are ideal for managing state in applications with complex data structures. Immutable data structures ensure that data remains unchanged, simplifying state management and reducing bugs caused by mutable data.

Compared to mutable data structures in JavaScript, Immutable offers better performance for operations like updates and comparisons, as well as improved concurrency control. It is actively maintained and widely used in projects where immutability is crucial for predictable and reliable data handling.
