JSF vs. JavaScript

What are the advantages of using JSF over JavaScript for developing rich client side web user interfaces?

I know that a very good UI in JavaScript takes the load off the server, but JavaScript is browser dependent (which is scary)...

Is the JSF framework difficult?

Sorry to have posted it here but I couldn't find any other section that would suit my questions more.....

JavaScript is not browser dependent if you code with the standards and only deal with modern day browsers.

BUT JavaScript can be turned off
