Webpack is a powerful and popular module bundler for JavaScript applications. It allows you to bundle and optimize your code, manage dependencies, and create a build pipeline for your project. With its extensive plugin system and configuration options, Webpack offers great flexibility and customization.

One of the key features of Webpack is its ability to handle different types of assets, including JavaScript, CSS, images, and more. It can transform and optimize these assets, enabling features like code splitting, lazy loading, and tree shaking to improve performance and reduce bundle size.

Compared to other bundlers like Browserify or Rollup, Webpack provides a more comprehensive and feature-rich solution. It has a vibrant ecosystem with a wide range of plugins and loaders available, making it suitable for small projects as well as large-scale applications.
