Atmosphere vs Lift Framework: What are the differences?

Atmosphere: Realtime Client Server Framework for the JVM, supporting WebSockets and Cross-Browser Fallbacks Support. The Atmosphere Framework contains client and server side components for building Asynchronous Web Applications. The majority of popular frameworks are either supporting Atmosphere or supported natively by the framework. The Atmosphere Framework supports all major Browsers and Servers; Lift Framework: The most powerful, most secure web framework available today. Lift creates abstractions that allow easier expression of business logic and then maps those abstractions to HTTP and HTML. This approach differs from traditional web frameworks which build abstractions on top of HTTP and HTML and require the developer to bridge between common business logic patterns and the underlying protocol.

Atmosphere and Lift Framework can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.

"Cross-Browse" is the primary reason why developers consider Atmosphere over the competitors, whereas "Open source" was stated as the key factor in picking Lift Framework.

Atmosphere and Lift Framework are both open source tools. It seems that Atmosphere with 3.34K GitHub stars and 720 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Lift Framework with 1.19K GitHub stars and 270 GitHub forks.
