For Facebook they mostly use PHP compiled into C++


PHP is a server-side scripting language designed for web development but also used as a general-purpose programming language.


C++ (pronounced “see plus plus”) is a statically typed, free-form, multi-paradigm, compiled, general-purpose programming language.


  • Facebook uses Linux, but has optimized it for its own purposes (especially in terms of network throughput).
  • Facebook uses MySQL, but primarily as a key-value persistent storage, moving joins and logic onto the web servers since optimizations are easier to perform there (on the “other side” of the Memcached layer).


Google Chrome includes V8, a JavaScript engine which is the foundation of Chrome’s efficiency improvements. Developers used Apple’s WebKit and Mozilla’s Firefox.
