I won't speak to JSF, but between the popularity of jQuery and Rico, there's no contest. Rico is a blip on the radar, while jQuery is wildly popular.

Ajax in JSF is a different story. You have to implement your own ViewHandler whenever you want to let Ajax play a role in the JSF lifecycle. Otherwise you'll have to do a lot of "nasty hacks" in the client side because of JSF's way of state management of the component tree.

There are component libraries out which already have done the ViewHandler work for you, like RichFaces and IceFaces. They also provides ready-to-use Ajaxical JSF components. I can recommend you RichFaces.
