Webpack is a popular module bundler for modern web applications. It allows developers to bundle assets, such as JavaScript, CSS, and images, into a single package that can be served to the browser. Webpack is modular and highly configurable, giving developers the flexibility to bundle their application in various ways to optimize performance. It can also be used to transpile code, like ES6 to ES5, and optimize your code for production.

Compared to other build tools, Webpack has gained popularity for its ease of use and intuitive configuration. Its plugin-based architecture makes it easy to add new features and extend its functionality. There are also many third-party plugins available, which make development more efficient and enjoyable.
