What is microtask

Posted by Jessica Taylor | Updated on

Microtask is the javascript code which needs to be executed immediately after the currently executing task/microtask is completed. They are kind of blocking in nature. i.e, The main thread will be blocked until the microtask queue is empty. The main sources of microtasks are Promise.resolve, Promise.reject, MutationObservers, IntersectionObservers etc

Note: All of these microtasks are processed in the same turn of the event loop.
