Building Web Applications
One of the primary uses of React is building web applications. React allows developers to build complex and dynamic user interfaces that can be updated in real-time. React’s component-based architecture makes it easy to develop, test, and maintain large-scale web applications.

Building Single-Page Applications
React is also used to build single-page applications (SPAs). SPAs are web applications that load a single HTML page and dynamically update the content as the user interacts with the application. React’s virtual DOM (Document Object Model) makes it easy to create SPAs that are fast, responsive, and scalable.
Creating UI Components
React is known for its component-based architecture, which makes it easy to create reusable UI components. Developers can create UI components such as buttons, menus, and input fields, which can be used across multiple web applications.
React can also be used for server-side rendering (SSR). SSR is the process of rendering web pages on the server instead of the client’s browser. With SSR, web pages can be rendered faster, and it also improves search engine optimization (SEO).
Creating Progressive Web Applications
React can be used to create progressive web applications (PWAs). PWAs are web applications that can be installed on a user’s device and function like native applications. React’s component-based architecture makes it easy to create PWAs that are responsive and scalable.
