### When Do You Need A JavaScript MV* Framework?
-When building a single-page application using JavaScript, whether it involves a complex user interface or is simply trying to reduce the number of HTTP requests required for new Views, you will likely find yourself inventing many of the pieces that make up an MV* framework like Backbone, or other popular frameworks such as Knockout.js, Ember.js, or Angular.js.

JavaScript now has a number of MVC frameworks, including Ember.js, JavaScriptMVC, and of course Backbone.js.
