'GraphQL' represents a paradigm shift in API interaction, serving as both a query language and a runtime for executing queries based on user-defined data types. In stark contrast to traditional REST APIs, GraphQL empowers clients to dictate the specific data structure they need, resulting in precisely tailored responses from the server and mitigating the issue of excessive data transfer.

GraphQL has gained rapid adoption driven by its efficacy and adaptability, offering a refined approach to data retrieval characterized by precision and structure. It has become the backbone of numerous large-scale applications and corporations, primarily selected for its capacity to enhance performance and accelerate development workflows.
