The ongoing HTML5 specification offers many features to promote a "rich" web user experience. If you've worked wth HTML5, you know that some features are available in some browsers and not available in others.

JSF Ajax frameworks have been around for some time. JSF is all about

The session will explore the variety of JSF Ajax frameworks available today.
the JavaServer Faces / Ajax standard. The JavaServer Faces 2.0 Expert Group includes members representing other JavaServer Faces / Ajax frameworks such as RichFaces, ADF Faces (Trinidad) and ICEfaces.
