React is a popular JavaScript library for building user interfaces. It allows developers to create reusable UI components and efficiently update the user interface in response to changes in data. React follows a component-based architecture, making it easy to build complex UIs by composing smaller, reusable components.

One of the key features of React is its virtual DOM, which enables efficient rendering and updates by only updating the parts of the UI that have changed. React also promotes a declarative programming style, where developers describe how the UI should look based on the current state, rather than imperatively manipulating the DOM.

Compared to other frameworks like Angular and Vue, React has a large and active community, extensive documentation, and a rich ecosystem of third-party libraries and tools. It is widely used in the industry and has gained popularity due to its performance, flexibility, and developer-friendly approach.
