At this month’s usergroup, Cristian Prieto (@cprieto) discussed Websockets in HTML 5. He covered which browsers support it, which server technologies support it (Windows 8 server is the only Windows operating system that supports it natively), which frameworks you can use to assist you in programming it, etc.

The most useful framework that was mentioned was It helps you write Javascript client side code that will interact with the server via websockets if available, otherwise it will fall back to long polling.
