Preact is an open-source JavaScript library for building user interfaces. Preact has a similar structure and features to React, but it's smaller in size because of its efficient code base. Developers use Preact as a foundation for their web applications without the overhead found in larger frameworks. The framework provides components, virtual DOM support to optimize UI updates, and state management options that help build complex apps structured around data changes. Due to its similarity with React, it allows developers familiar with React to transition smoothly while delivering faster load times and better performance on low-powered devices.
