In simpler words , for example if you are watching Youtube video and some one commented on the video then to view that comment the whole page will be reloaded which eventually means that your video is going to start from the starting .

Vue.js tries to eliminate these difficulties by utlizing Virtual DOM to manage the view that is seen by the user. Using Virtual DOM simply means that if you update any part of the DOM then instead of reloading the whole page for the changes to take effect it just updates only that section of the DOM without reloading the DOM. This means the comments would update without you even noticing it.
