Hi Daniel,

I can't elaborate on everything, but know that comparing Ext JS to any library is like comparing apples to oranges.

In short, Ext JS is a full UI library, complete with an observable event model, component model and layout model architectures. It also has data stores capable of reading XML, JSON, and Array data.

You'll find no other library out there on the market that has what Ext JS does under the hood.

I welcome any YUI expert to correct me on this, but from my understanding of YUI, no. YUI provides layouts, but if you look under the hood of Ext JS (Chapters 1-3 in my book), you find lots of structure that make Ext JS stand apart from other libraries, which helps elevate it into a full UI library, instead of a collection of widgets.
