You might be interested in server push options, where you can have the
server pushing events to the html client.

I have a very simple example using Yaws here:

I also describe other options for server based push at:

I have an application that also needs to display charts using ajax
from regular server events so would be interested in what you come up
with. I was thinking of using a flash bridge like AFLAX. In my case
I'm getting regular server updates of  odds and dividends from TAB's
for horse race meetings and displaying them in the browser.

Chris.
