Underscore is a utility library for JavaScript that provides a wide range of functions to manipulate and work with arrays, objects, functions, and other data types. It offers functional programming helpers, such as map, reduce, filter, and more, making it easier to perform common operations on data structures. Underscore also includes utilities for handling asynchronous operations, templating, and functional composition.

Compared to modern alternatives like Lodash, Underscore is considered a legacy library with fewer features and optimizations. While Underscore is still actively maintained, it is recommended to use Lodash for better performance, more features, and ongoing updates.
