NowJS is a NodeJS module. The client javascript (now.js) is served by the NowJS server. NowJS creates a magic namespace “now”, accessible by server and client. Functions and variables added to now are automatically synced, in real-time.

You can call easily client functions from the server and server functions from the client. That means you can push to the client simply by calling a client-side Javascript function on the server. Communication is achieved using Socket.io

NowJS v0.2 is supported in Chrome, Opera, Safari, Firefox, and IE9. Support for older version of IE is coming.
