What is Joomla ?
Joomla! is an open source content management system platform for publishing content on the World Wide Web and intranets as well as a Model–view–controller (MVC) Web application framework. It is written in PHP, stores data in MySQL and includes features such as page caching, RSS feeds, printable versions of pages, news flashes, blogs, polls, search, and support for language internationalization.
Why its used in web designing?
The fact is that Joomla is one of the easiest ways to quickly design and create your own website. You can easily create a wonderful looking website with loads of functionality.
Joomla comes with a lot of built-in functionality but there are also thousands of free components and modules that you can add on to expand the functionality.
The other nice thing about Joomla is that there are lots of forums that offer free support and guidance. The problem normally with freeware is that support is provided not through any licensing fees that you pay, but through a community that all contribute and therefore gain themselves in the long term. Joomla has a very active community, and it is therefore very easy to get support for any possible problem.
Unique tasks that you can do with it ?

A content management system is software that keeps track of every piece of content on your Web site, much like your local public library keeps track of books and stores them. Content can be simple text, photos, music, video, documents, or just about anything you can think of. A major advantage of using a CMS is that it requires almost no technical skill or knowledge to manage. Since the CMS manages all your content, you don't have to.

Corporate Web sites or portals
Corporate intranets and extranets
Online magazines, newspapers, and publications
